Walk the forest canopy at Skywalk

Soak up the scenery and experience the magical rainforest

The SceneEssence Scenic Tour offers the opportunity to soak up the wonderful natural beauty of Tamborine Mountain and the scenery it provides.  You will experience the rainforest up and close at the magical Skywalk, see cascading waterfalls and rock pools, take in magnificent views from look out points, visit a unique organic farm, Jasmin Organics, and stroll around the tranquil Botanical Gardens.  There is an option to visit the purpose built glow worm caves at Cedar Creek Estate.

 

There will be plenty of photo opportunities and encounters with nature.

Termed the 'Green Island in the Sky'[1], Tamborine Mountain comprises an alluring combination of lush subtropical rainforest and open eucalypt forest on the Tamborine plateau.  Sub tropical vegetation including mystical fern trees and ancient cycads abound with waterfalls and rock pools interspersed around the Tamborine National Park.

 

Walking high amongst the rainforest canopy at the renown Skywalk you will get a real sense of what it's like up high amongst the rainforest canopy with the sounds of birdlife and cicadas surrounding you.  Before you start your journey through the canopy, their Rainforest Eco Gallery will provide you with everything you need to know about the flora and fauna in the area.

 

The many scenic viewpoints provide magnificent views over both the ocean side to Moreton and Stradbroke Islands and across the Scenic Rim as far as the Granite Belt on the other side.

A visit to Jasmin Organics in its picturesque setting of rainforest backdrop and colourful lavender fields in the forefront is a unique experience.  Jasmin Organics is a world leader in producing organic skincare on site and provides informative tours of their end-to-end processes.

 

The tour ends at the magical Botanical Gardens set on 9 hectares of rainforest where the 'Tropical meets Temperate'.  Walk amongst the Magnolia Garden, Camellia Garden or the Bromeliad Garden near the Lakeside.
