Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk

Another great visit, still a bit expensive but nevertheless. If you come between October and January you may be lucky to see some Richmond Birdwing Butterflies (I saw several).

Bullocky Rest to Forgan Cove Loop

An easy walk with some nice lake views. Good for a cool afternoon.

Boat Harbour, Point Danger and North Tweed Circuit

An easy, short and paved walk with plenty to see along the way. As there isn't much shade along the way this one is best done in the early morning or late afternoon.

Westside Track

This walk is less busy than the others from the Maiala car park. There was a massive tree obstructing the track towards the end, this was manageable to climb under. I recommend combining this one with the Westerner Window track on the way back. It offers a nice view and will take you back to the picnic ground.

Western Window Track

A nice lookout. You can cheat by parking alongside the road and walking down the steps. If you are after a bit more of a challenge consider combining this walk with the Westside Track.

Rainforest Rail Trail

An enjoyable walk. Walking on the rail track was a bit challenging at times. The tunnel was amazing, saw plenty of micro bats and glow worms. The overgrown section at the end was very popular with the bird life.

Araucaria Lookout

If you love panoramic views then this walk is for you. The track was a bit muddy due to the light rain the previous day. The path is a little overgrown in sections and I did see two snakes, definitely wear long pants for this one. Once the track splits from the Border Track the amount of traffic decreases significantly. The Border Track feeds most of the other tracks in the area so the traffic is a lot higher which reduces the chances to see wildlife, because of this it can be a bit of a slog. Despite this, the Orchid Bower and Araucaria lookouts were amazing and well worth the journey.

Tinchi Tamba Wetlands

A nice flat walk, best to combine all walks in the area. A good place for birding.

Tabbil-ban dhagun

Nice walk for birdwatchers. This area is supposed to be good to spot Rainbow Honeyeaters. I didn't see any but I could hear them.

Mary Cairncross Reserve

Another great visit. Saw plenty of interesting birds. Don't miss the fantastic lookout of the Glasshouse Mountains across the road.
