Day Trips with Children- Bush Walking!

by Amber (follow)
As a family with 3 young children, we are always looking for places to take our kids that will burn all of their energy! So today we headed to Mt Tamborine National Park.

Mt Tamborine has many walking trails, each offering different levels of difficulty. Today we went to the Knoll section of Mt Tamborine, which is listed as an "easy grade"- so great for younger children.

The trail we did was the Sandy Creek/Cameron Falls Circuit (B3), which has a 2.6 km return and takes roughly an hour to complete. This section also has on site toilets, although car parks are limited so it is best to arrive either early in the morning or late afternoon. We arrived at 3:30 and the parking lot was almost full.

The circuit offers many chances to view the local wildlife, the large black skink lizards are apparently seen regularly, although we have yet to spot one!

There are also many small birds and bush turkeys and
the circuit has some amazing views that even our seven and five year old enjoyed.



A concrete bridge crosses Sandy Creek, allowing you to stop and view the "Cameron falls" waterfall from above, which is quite stunning and our two year old was really excited to watch.

The circuit does have quite a lot of rock stairs, which can be slippy when there has been rainfall, we didn't have to worry too much as it last rained a few days ago but it might be something to prepare for if you visit.

Just after the bridge is the “Cameron Falls” lookout, which looks over the whole city. Our kids enjoyed trying to "find our house"- which our five year old swore he could see!



After the walk it's nice to sit and enjoy lunch, snacks or just have a little rest! The knolls section has a good amount of picnic tables and also a large area to lay down a picnic blanket.

I would definitely recommend Mt Tambourine to any active family who enjoys getting out into nature!

For more information, head on over to the Discover Tambourine Website and plan your visit.
