What To Do Nearby
There is always something to do on Tamborine Mountain, from the highs of exploring the rainforest canopies at “Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk”, watching the Skydivers take off from the edge of the Mountain, or literally flying through the air yourself on Australia’s largest, highest and fastest Zip Line Tour at Thunderbird Park; to the lows of going underground at the Glow Worm Caves; and everything in between. We have listed just a few below for you:
Thunderbird Park: As mentioned above, this can be a very funfilled day out for everyone, activities include the Treetop Challenge at 3 levels: The Canyon Flyer Zip Line Tour; The Adventure Park; and the section for junior adventures. There is also Mini Golf, Thunder Egg Fossicking, Laser Skirmish just to name a few.
