Tamborine Mountain Botanic Gardens
Forsythia Drive, EAGLE HEIGHTS, QLD 4271
A visit to Tamborine Mountain is not complete without time spent in its Botanic Gardens, where tropical meets temperate.
Covering 11 hectares, the gardens consist of exotic species and the natural rainforest of the mountain. For 25 years, volunteers have developed this property into the highly photographic boutique gardens they are today.
Being 500 metres above sea level, Tamborine Mountain has a cooler and less-humid climate than the lower coastal areas. This allows the growth of plants from cool-climate and temperate zones. Flowering cherries, rhododendron species, magnolias, camellias and maples are among the genera on display.
Experience the ambience of a rainforest by walking the 100-metre trail. You will discover other themed areas, including the Japanese garden, rose garden, bromeliad garden, wisteria-covered pergolas, perennial/cottage garden and features such as the lake, with its quaint stone bridge and water lilies.
