The Tamborine Mountain Rainforest Skywalk offers visitors a unique and thrilling way to explore the beautiful rainforest canopies. The Skywalk is set in a magical 30 acres of privately owned rainforest, beside the crystal clear rock-pools of Cedar Creek on Mt Tamborine.
The Skywalk is an amazing way to take in a different view of Tamborine Mountain than usual, and is totally family friendly! You are free to take the walk at your own pace, stopping wherever takes your interest, and the walk is suitable for larger-wheeled strollers (there are a few parts that have a couple of steps you will need to navigate over).
When you first arrive at the Skywalk, you’ll enter the Eco Gallery, which hosts a comprehensive array of Australian rainforest flora and fauna displays. Here you can learn about some of the wildlife you might see on the walk. There is also the Birdwing Cafe, where you can enjoy light refreshments before or after your walk.
The walk takes about 45 minutes at a leisurely pace, including time spent at the points of interest along the way. The entire walk totals 1.5kms, and is a combination of 300 metres of steel bridges through the highest points of the upper canopy (this is the first part of the walk), some forest floor trails, and the highlight of the skywalk – a 40 metre cantilever bridge that sits 30 metres above the creek and rainforest below.
There was plenty to keep our toddler interested, with lots of information points along the way. Stopping at the creek was a highlight as it was in full flow when we visited. We kept our toddler in the stroller on the bridges, however they are fully secured with enclosed sides so it would be fine for little ones who prefer to walk. Keep an eye out for some of the carved animals, especially the log bench after the cantilever bridge!
