Try think of a popular tourist attraction on the Gold Coast. I bet you that you names one of the popular Gold Coast theme parks such as Warner Brothers Movie World? However after experiencing the unforgettable Tamborine Mountain Rainforest Skywalk in the Gold Coast Hinterland, there is now a new attraction to add to that list.
The Rainforest Skywalk is a 300 metre long elevated high-tech steel structure that allows visitors to discover the beautiful middle and upper canopies of the rainforest in a safe and secure way.
The Tamborine Mountain Rainforest Skywalk is only a pleasant 40 minutes drive from Surfers Paradise when you take advantage of our cheap Gold Coast car hire rates. The sub-tropical rainforest walks, waterfalls and small villages around Tamborine Mountain have always been a popular destination for visitors and Gold Coasters alike. The lowest points of the walkway allow you to explore rock pools, waterfalls, a butterfly lookout, a local history enclosure and sheltered rest areas along the way until reaching the amazing “Cantilever”. This is a mammoth 40 metre long platform soaring over 30 metres above the valley, with magnificent views over the creek and the rainforest canopies below
For those who want to venture out onto the canopy walk, the discovery begins in the Rainforest Eco Gallery, which comprises of a comprehensive range of rainforest fauna and flora information and displays. Some of these include interpretive panels and photos of sub-tropical rainforest wildlife and an aquarium with an array of Australian freshwater fish.
Other interesting things to see along the Skywalk include the cool shady stream and rock pool at Cedar Creek. You will be amazed to discover that frogs, small rainbow fish, shrimps, crayfish and even fishing spiders can share this delightful waterway.
