Tamborine Mountain update

Blossoms are blooming and vines are sprouting new growth!  Sep 2017
Tamborine Mountain is blooming beautiful at this time of the year! Pretty blossoms abound, vineyards are sprouting fresh new green growth, bees are buzzing busily and birds are chirping prettily!  It's a great time of the year to visit.

It is the season for Scarecrow Festival!  Sep 2017
Fabulous to see the community spirit and collaborative effort going into this year's Scarecrow Festival held over weekend of 16/17 Sep.  My guests on their Wine Tour were treated to the unexpected pleasure of being drawn into the community spirit of preparing for the festival and were blown away by this "gorgeous little community".   Guests on another tour enjoyed seeing the variety of wonderful scarecrows on show over the weekend.  There were some 'wows' and chuckles!

Matching wine with chocolate at Witches Falls Winery - Jul 2017

What better way to enjoy Witches Falls Winery's excellent Granite Belt Merlot with quality dark Swiss chocolate!  Thanks for the tip Peter - my guests loved the combo!  It's a thumbs up.

Water flowing at Cedar Creek Falls and quests swimming in the gorgeous rock pools

This is a great site.  You can view the waterfalls from above and also walk down to the rock pools below the waterfall.  It's a very easy descent to the Cedar Creek rock pools on a sealed pathway.  Two of my guests recently went for a an invigorating swim on the rock pools and loved it!  They weren't alone!

Water flowing at Curtis Falls - beautiful surrounds

The water is flowing after recent rainfall with both Cedar Creek and Curtis Falls worth a visit!  You will need shoes you don't mind getting muddy to walk the very manageable track down to Curtis Falls.  The walk itself through the rainforest is great, giving you that real rainforest feel.

A hidden gem - the Tamborine Mountain Botanic Gardens

Love this place.  The obvious care and love shown in looking after these gardens together with it's beauty and the feel of being in touch with nature makes the Tamborine Mountain Botanic Gardens a very special place.  There is so much to see and much to contemplate!  These photos taken yesterday don't provide the full story - the birds singing, the feeling of natural beauty around you, the ambience and the serenity.
