There’s never been a better time for a picnic at the Botanic Gardens.


The volunteers are all back in full swing and the gardens are fabulous at the moment.









Remember it usually 4 degrees cooler on the mountain but the welcome is very warm.

So pack up your picnic gear or take advantage of the many food outlets on Tamborine Mountain to pick up some supplies for your picnic. Remember we do not have barbecue facilities in the gardens and please bring your own water as the water in our taps is from a bore and not suitable to drink.

So it’s probably a good time to look again some of our visitor information.

most of the information for your visit is contained in these pages.
