Tamborine Mountain Regional Botanic Gardens remain closed to the public following the Christmas night storm.

The volunteers will return to begin restoration work next Thursday, February 15. This will take some time. Scenic Rim Regional Council officers have been incredibly supportive to us and arranged contractors to remove broken and damaged trees quickly. However the gardens themselves will require considerable work to restore to a condition of safety and for the community to enjoy. Much of the infrastructure, including buildings and paths, require repair before being safe.

Are you willing to assist? More volunteers able to help with digging, planting, pruning and general clean-up will help greatly with our work.

Simply come to the Gardens on any Thursday – beginning on the 15th - from 8.30am. You do not need tools or equipment. We can supply. Wear sun-safe clothing and hat and solid shoes. Walk from the car park past the toilet block to our green work shed.

For further information about volunteering in this work please phone our Secretary on 0409 263 666

Welcome to the Tamborine Mountain Regional Botanic Gardens in the Scenic Rim

The delightful Tamborine Mountain Regional Botanic Gardens are a must-see experience on any visit to the region.

Just a short drive through the hinterland west from the Gold Coast, the Botanic Gardens combine a colourful and diverse range of exotic and native flora. The Gardens include a glorious lake as the centrepiece, a tranquil Japanese garden, a tropical rainforest walk and many other delights.

Bring a picnic, bring the children, take a stroll along the many walks and learn why the Tamborine Mountain Regional Botanic Gardens are truly where Tropical meets Temperate.

The Gardens are supported, maintained and administered by volunteers and are some of the most dynamic and active people promoting the values and enjoyment of gardening in south-east Queensland.
