The delightful Tamborine Mountain Botanic Gardens are a must-see experience on any visit to the region. Just a short drive through the hinterland west from the Gold Coast, the Tamborine Mountain Botanic Gardens combine a colourful and diverse range of exotic and native flora. The Gardens include a glorious lake as the centrepiece, a tranquil Japanese garden, a tropical rainforest walk and many other delights. Bring a picnic, bring the children, take a stroll along the many walks and learn why the Tamborine Mountain Botanic Gardens are truly where Tropical meets Temperate. The Gardens are supported, maintained and administered by volunteers and members of the Tamborine Mountain Garden Club, one of the most dynamic and active organisations promoting the values and enjoyment of gardening in south-east Queensland.
