Information Board

“The Knoll” picnic area and lookout is one of the many hidden treasures on Tamborine Mountain. The grounds are well kept; the shady grass area is quite large and offers breathtaking views inland. Plenty of parking, ease of access and all facilities make “The Knoll” an ideal spot for a picnic lunch or a BBQ.


The “Qld Department of National Parks, Sport and Racing” has put up warning signs discouraging the feeding of native wildlife:

“It’s hard to resist – but do not feed the birds!
Native animals that are fed human food may:
• become sick or
• overpopulate the area
• bite, kick, peck or scratch you and other park visitors

Please help the animals and all park users. Let native animals find their own food.”
