Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk
Exploring the Rainforest Canopies….
Visitors depart from the Rainforest Eco Gallery and begin the adventure on a spectacular elevated walkway through the beautiful middle and upper canopies of the rainforest. The walkway is a stable, high-tech steel structure enabling visitors to explore these canopies in a safe and secure way.
It descends gradually to the lower canopy and follows points of interest including rock pools and waterfalls, a butterfly lookout, local history enclosure, and sheltered rest areas along the way until reaching the amazing Cantilever.
This is a 40 metre long span soaring 30 metres above the valley, with spectacular views over the creek and the rainforest canopies below. Finally, the walk returns along the rainforest floor to the Centre. For those who venture onto the canopy walk, the adventure begins in the Rainforest Eco Gallery which has a comprehensive array of rainforest fauna and flora information and displays.
These include interpretive panels with descriptions and photos of sub-tropical rainforest wildlife, static displays, and an aquarium with a variety of Australian freshwater fish.
The “Birdwing Café” serves delicious light refreshments inside or on the deck beside the rainforest, also offers an interesting gift and souvenir shop with quality merchandise. Open every day (except Christmas Day) 9.30 am to the last walk at 4 pm.
