Thunderbird Park as they say is where ‘adventure meets nature’; where you can visit for the day, or stay and spend a few days experiencing everything on offer!
Thunderbird Park has attractions for all ages; think of a high ropes courses and zip lines through the trees, Laser Skirmish, mini golf, pickleball, bird feeding, the list goes on!
It also has the world’s largest deposit of gemstone-filled thundereggs. These eggs are created by bubbles in prehistoric volcanic lava that has solidified into rock form and can range from the size of a pea to the size of a boulder! The whole family can participate in this activity where, after a quick information session about safety and what to look for, you are given a bucket and sent on your way! Once you’ve filled your bucket you can head to the gem shop where you can pay to cut your ‘eggs’ to reveal crystal formations unique in every piece.
If you’re looking for a more physical activity, for adventurers seven years and older, the Treetop Challenge is a great way to experience the natural beauty of Mount Tamborine through a sequence of platforms, flying foxes and rope bridges. For junior adventurers aged three to seven, there is a junior challenge with some confidence building challenges featuring net bridges and wobbly logs.
If you’re looking for an adrenaline hit, the Canon Flyer is a high-speed zipline that reaches speeds of up to 70km an hour! With seven ziplines totalling 1.4km, it takes you high above the treetops and not for the faint-hearted!
Something lower key but just as exciting, and with your feet firmly on the ground, is mini golf. Suitable for all age levels, each course features three holes of varying difficulty per green, so everyone has fun but can be challenged at the same time.
With so much to see and do at Thunderbird Park, it’s a must see on any trip to Tamborine Mountain.
