The Tamborine Mountain Botanic Gardens Friends affiliate welcomes members who wish to support our unique organisation.

Become a friend

The Friends are not obliged to work in the Gardens on a regular basis. That is the role of our wonderful Volunteers. For those who do not wish or are unable to dig and weed and tend, there are many valuable roles you can play in helping to improve our Gardens.

The TMBG Friends offers a wide range of benefits and opportunities to participate in the future of the Gardens.

These include:

  • Financial support for the Gardens
  • Becoming a Botanic Gardens Guide
  • Catering/organising events in the Gardens
  • Assistance with Accounting/Finance

Botanic Gardens Guides

Tamborine Mountain Botanic Gardens Guides play a vital role in educating and informing groups of people who visit our Gardens. We receive regular bus groups at the Gardens, from garden clubs and retirement villages to organisations such a Probus and Lions. Our Guides will help to engage these groups, to make their visit comprehensive and to ensure they leave with greater knowledge and appreciation of the aims and purpose of our Gardens and of all botanic gardens.

You may wish to assist in fund-raising by helping with special events. You may be skilled at various administrative roles that the Friends need. You may simply want to lend a hand where necessary.


We offer both individual and family memberships to Tamborine Mountain Botanic Gardens Friends.
