Experience the rainforest from a 30 metre high treetop perch
A gentle mist of rain floated down through the canopy of glossy green leaves (cue relaxation music) as we walked along the path, surrounded by trees in the cool refreshing rainforest. Suddenly I realised what a beautiful moment this was and "yesss", I was practicing mindfulness...insert fist pump here. Seriously though, walking through the Rainforest Skywalk at Mount Tamborine is a soothing and beautiful experience and I highly recommend doing it.

The walk is a combination of pathway and elevated walkway through the treetops in 30 acres of privately owned rainforest on Mount Tamborine, Queensland, Australia. You depart directly from the main building which houses the ticket counter, café and a gallery of Australian rainforest flora and fauna displays and gifts for purchase. Meandering alongside the rock-pools of Cedar Creek, the walk takes approximately 45 minutes however, like us, you can easily spend over an hour. We made a slower pace so I could periodically stand quietly to listen to the birds and rustle of leaves and feel the mist of rain touch my skin.

The guide says "the entire walk totals 1.5 kms and is a combination of forest floor trails, 300 metres of high-tech steel bridges through the highest points of the upper canopy, and a 40 metre cantilever bridge that soars a breathtaking 30 metres above the creek and rainforest below".

As part of a road trip with my children, I found the Rainforest Walk to be an amazing place to clear your head and get up close with the beauty of the natural surroundings.

Rainforest Skywalk Natural Beauty
If you like photography, you will be spoiled for choice here with soaring panoramic vistas or close up encounters with micro wonders of nature. My photographic effort is this 'Koru', which in Maori is the word for the new unfurling fern frond. Being so close to the attractions of Tamborine Mountain you really don't need any other motivation to enjoy this walk.
