The “Cedar Creek Falls” Picnic Area is located at the start of the walking trail to “Cedar Creek Falls”.
There are two distinctly separate picnic areas. The first one is closer to the car park and offers plenty of room and facilities. There are large flat grassed areas ideal for throwing a ball, with many tree-sheltered picnic settings spread out along the edges. An ideal family area away from any traffic noise or similar suburban influences.
The closeness to the only swimming hole on Tamborine Mountain “Cedar Creek Falls” makes this picnic area the ideal summer destination. Three waterfalls are just 10 minutes walk away, inviting the visitor to cool down from the summer’s heat. The waterfalls are spectacular all year round, the gorge scenery breathtaking.
The second area is reached after approximately two hundred meters walk on a sealed path, just to the right of the beginning of the boardwalk that leads to the falls. This area was once used as a school and group campground, and therefore provides a safe and secluded setting for your next picnic, close to nature and with all facilities you could wish for!
Please note that at peak periods you will find it difficult to find a car parking spot close to Cedar Creek Falls and the Picnic Areas. To keep the impact on local wildlife (as well as the residents!) to a minimum, car parking spaces have been limited. The access road has a yellow line marking on both sides, meaning that parking on the access road is NOT permitted, as the road is simply too narrow. Additional car parking is available at the start of the road, at the turnoff to Thunderbird Park. From there a leisurely 20-minute stroll will get you to the first picnic area.
