Easy track
Starting from the end of Curtis Road, Tamborine Mountain, this walk takes you on a circuit in the lush rainforest and eucalypt woodland of Tamborine NP via the Palm Grove and Jenyns Circuit tracks. Expect to be amazed by the interchanging vegetation and teeming wildlife as you stroll along the well-shaded track. Observe the flora as the subtropical rainforest leaves its place to an eucalypt woodland in sections. You’ll have a chance to spot pademelons, bush turkeys and cute little wallabies. The birdsong of kookaburras and green catbirds coupled with the sound of cicadas will make a great addition to your hike. Expect to see glimpses of the Gold Coast between the trees. If you’re interested in different tree species, this hidden gem of a walk can be quite satisfactory. This peaceful hike is quite kid-friendly with its undulating tracks, but remember to keep an eye on snakes at all times. The creeks are stronger and can even form little waterfalls after some decent rainfall, but this can lead to more leeches and slippery footing. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
