The Tamborine Mountain Botanic Gardens were developed and are maintained by volunteers with assistance from the Scenic Rim Regional Council.

We welcome everyone to our Gardens. Please be aware that, while we welcome individuals, families and groups, we are unable to provide services or special facilities for weddings, celebrations or other special interest groups. The Gardens include a number of locations that are ideal for groups. However, these areas cannot be exclusively reserved.

Spaces cannot be reserved in the Council-owned car park. This is an area available for all our visitors and we ask that you respect all our visitors.

Please help the volunteers keep the grounds beautiful by taking your waste home with you.
