Skywalk – what is it? Well, our understanding was this was a structure situated on private property enabling visitors and tourists the opportunity to experience a natural rainforest in a unique way, and so we considered it a privilege to be able to share in this natural beauty.
With a great deal of thought in mind for protection of this pristine environment, a magnificent steel structure was built by the owners of this property to carry visitors over this rainforest with its free flowing creek in the shadows below. Signposts informed this was home to platypus, although we didn't have the pleasure of spotting one.
The walk starts through the Rainforest Eco Gallery and leads on to the spectacular elevated walkway. A safe structure leads through canopy of the rainforest and also enables one to look down through to the forest floor below. The walkway gradually descends to the lower canopy where the walk continues beside the creek and rock pools
In need of nourishment at the end of your leisurely walk you need go no further than the Birdwing Cafe, where you will find delicious light refreshments to enjoy. Seating is provided both inside and outside on the deck overlooking the rainforest. There is also an interesting gift shop.
The Tamborine Mountain Eco Centre and Rainforest Skywalk is entirely owned and operated by the Moore family
Although what Wendy discribes above is all correct, there is no need whatsoever to spend the Dollars. When in the Tambrine Mountains go to the Cedar Creek Falls and do the Witches Falls walk. This is even more beautiful and FREE.
