Covering 11 glorious hectares, the Gardens consist of exotic species and the natural rainforest of Tamborine Mountain. Over 25 years, dedicated volunteers have developed this property into the highly-photographic boutique Gardens that they are today. Nestled snugly in Tamborine Mountain’s majestic natural rainforest, Tamborine Mountain’s very own stunning Botanic Gardens is in a world all of its own far away from the hustle and bustle of neighbouring cities. Being 500 metres above sea level, Tamborine Mountain has a climate that is cooler and less humid than the lower coastal areas. This allows plants to be grown from cool climate and temperate zones. Flowering cherries, Rhododendron species, Magnolias, Camellias and Maples are a few of the genera on display. You will discover interestingly themed areas including the Japanese garden, Rose garden, Bromeliad garden, Wisteria covered pergolas, Perennial / cottage garden, and features such as the lake with its quaint stone bridge and water lilies. Many exotic species from all over the world thrive in Tamborine Mountain’s temperate climate creating spectacular botanic displays all year round, so no matter what time of year you may decide to visit us, all the seasons offer different viewing perspectives.
