The walk begins with a trek through the Rainforest Eco Gallery, which provides comprehensive and interactive displays about the rainforest flora and fauna, as well as a freshwater aquarium stocked with native Australian fish.
The walk itself departs from this gallery. A variety of rainforest ecosystems are explored. The elevated walkway rises through the middle and upper canopies of the rainforest before descending through the canopy and taking walkers through the forest rock pools and to the butterfly look out. Here, you will find local history information booths and rest stops.
Next, you will reach the Cantilever, a 40 metre long lookout that offers views of the creeks and valleys below. The walk then dips to the forest floor. The walk is self paced and takes an average of forty-five minutes to complete. The first three hundred metres are wheelchair accessible.
Once you've completed the walk, you can explore the Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk Centre. This bright, modern building contains a reception area where staff can answer any questions, the Birdwing Cafe, a small eatery with a rainforest deck that serves light meals and drinks, a retail store selling souvenirs and gifts and toilet facilities.
The skywalk is available to walkers from 9.30am until 4.00pm, while the Centre stays open until 5.00pm, every day except Christmas Day.
