Me and T decided to spend a sunny Sunday on a day trip to Mt Tamborine which is just over an hours drive from Brisbane.
First stop was to do the rainforest skywalk – a canopy walk: “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.” A good way to see the rainforest but we expected more of the steel bridges through the canopy and were hoping the walk would be a bit longer. Still a fun activity.
Next we decided to drive further up the mountain to explore. we came across some amazing view points and stopped to snap some pictures.
We passed a load of winery’s and made a promise that we would come back and take full advantage of them. We have seen something called The Vino Bus which will come and pick you up from where you live, drives you to Mt Tamborine, takes you to various winery’s and provides lunch and then more wine and then takes you home nicely pissed! So we are determined to get a group of us together and go on the vino bus.
Feeling a bit peckish we found ourselves in a lovely cafe in North Tamborine called Spice of Life . It was one of those places where I wanted to eat every single thing on the menu! I settled for the open BLAT and T had a morrocan lamb stew. Not satisfied we ended up trying some of their cakes too! I can’t wait to go back.
After lunch we drove back down the mountain to Cedar Creek falls. After a good walk from the car park we found the waterfalls which honestly weren’t too impressive but was clearly a popular place for people to come and sunbathe and swim because it was packed! After the long (uphill) trek back to the car i was very ready to head home.
