Starting from the car park off Knoll Road, Tamborine Mountain, this walk takes you on a circuit in the lush rainforest of Tamborine National Park, visiting Cameron Falls and a couple of lookouts along the way. Admire the beautiful scenery as the gentle walking tracks welcome you into an immersive experience through nature. Keep an ear out for the soothing sound of water gushing down as you get closer to the waterfall. Here, you’ll be able to see gorgeous orchids finding their way out of the rocks around spring. If lucky, you may even view the rainbow that is forming from the strong spray of water. Speaking of, the waterfall is best viewed after decent rainfall, but that might lead to more leeches and muddy sections in the track. Besides the waterfall, the area is home to many bird species such as lyrebirds and bowerbirds. In fact, you can try to spot a bowerbird nest as you have a nice picnic in the rainforest. You can eat anywhere along the track but keep in mind that there is a designated picnic area at the trailhead, providing you tables and such. An insect repellent may come in handy. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
