Walk above and through the Tamborine Rainforest on a pedestrian bridge. It’s under an hour away by car from Gold Coast!

The Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk is luckily only a short walk. It is 1.5 kilometres in total which is about a 45 minute walk. The bridge is about 300 metres. Walking along the bridge allows you to discover the rainforest from up high. You will be able to get different views of the rainforest and you can see Cedar Creek on some parts of the walk. You will come across some informative signs to learn more. When walking across the bridges you will reach a 40 metre cantilever bridge. It then takes you up 30 metres above the floor. From here you can get incredible views of the rainforest, creeks below you, and Mount Tamborine. The rainforest has so much flora and fauna to see, and you might spot some wildlife when exploring.

Eco Gallery

The Eco Gallery is the best place to start your visit of the Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk. Inside you can discover all the animals, birds, and reptiles that live in the rainforest. Then when you do the Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk, you can try spotting some of these wildlife in their natural habitat. You can find some dioramas of insects and butterfly collections inside the gallery. There are also information boards on the First Nations’ history and local history. One of the most exciting parts of the gallery is the 11 foot fish tank! Inside the tank there are numerous native endemic fish. The fish tank is made to be similar to a natural rainforest pool.

Birdwing Cafe

After exploring the Tamborine Rainforest, sit down for a drink and snacks at Birdwing Café. From the café, you get incredible views of the rainforest, whether you are inside or outside on the deck. Enjoy having one of their light snacks or cookies along with a coffee, soft drink, or juice.
