HEIGHT: APPROX 560M ABOVE SEA LEVEL

LOCATION: TAMBORINE NATIONAL PARK

Tamborine Mountain features a 28 square-kilometre plateau 560m above sea level and is home to a thriving community which welcomes visitors.

Tamborine Mountain is home to Queensland’s first National Park. Tamborine National Park was declared in 1908 and features a number of walking tracks, outlooks and areas of rainforest, spread across 14 sections on the plateau and surrounding foothills.

The Mountain is a thriving tourist destination with a population of just under 7000 people, and distinct communities are located across the 8km plateau. It offer visitors a range of experiences, including art galleries, gift shops, cafes, wineries and fine dining restaurants.

The Mountain boasts a wide range of accommodation options to suit most tastes and budgets.

Cedar Creek Lodges by @cedarcreeklodges

The climate is subtropical and the rich red volcanic soil sustains rich food crops and lush bushland.

The Wangerriburra people are the traditional owners of Tamborine Mountain, and the Wangerriburra people were there tens of thousands of years before white settlement.

Tamborine Mountain was once completely covered by subtropical rainforest, which was cleared for agriculture and timber production when the mountain was opened for selection in 1875.

Tamborine Mountain is home to many beautiful picnic spots and spectacular walking trails.

 The most popular walking tracks include the Curtis Falls rainforest track and The Knoll track, which leads to Cameron Falls.

 Camping is not allowed in the Tamborine National Park, however camping and caravan facilities are offered at Thunderbird Park and Tamborine Mountain Caravan and Camping. Many other styles of accommodation are also offered on the mountain.

BBQ and picnic facilities are available across the mountain. Most have great views and some also feature children’s playgrounds.

Tamborine National Park features wet subtropical rainforest habitat and has been declared as an Important Bird Area by BirdLife International.

Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk by @tamborinerainforestskywalk

The Mountain is home to 10 different types of forest, including subtropical rainforest, wet eucalypt forest and open eucalypt forest.

Tamborine Mountain’s rich alluvial soil produces a bounty of food crops, including avocados, rhubarb and vegetables, which are available from many roadside stalls and The Green Shed market, which is on every Sunday at the Tamborine Mountain Showgrounds.

Local produce at The Green Shed by @christinehsharp for Eat Local Scenic Rim.

The name Tamborine is from the local Yugambeh language. It means wild lime and refers to the finger lime trees that grow wild on the mountain. They were eaten as a thirst quencher and were one of the first foods traded to the settlers.

An annual foodie event which started from humble beginnings nearly 10 years ago has earned the Scenic Rim a national award for driving economic prosperity.

Scenic Rim Eat Local Week 2018 won the ‘Economic Development Single Event or Activity’ category at the National Economic Development Awards in Adelaide on 24 October.

The Scenic Rim Regional Council outshone a record number of entries from across Australia, including fellow events category finalists Southern Grampians Shire Council and Logan City Council, to win the award.

Brenda Walker – Scenic Rim Regional Council Manager of Regional Prosperity and Communications – accepts the award on behalf of the region.

 

Council’s submission for the award was based on 2018 Scenic Rim Eat Local Week, which attracted 40,000 people to the region and contributed more than $2 million to the local economy.

Scenic Rim Mayor Greg Christensen said winning at the National Economic Development Awards reinforced the clear value of the region’s food and drink industries.

“Scenic Rim Eat Local Week is an incredible celebration, and this award demonstrates it runs so much deeper than that,” he said.

“This is a win for the entire local supply chain, from the farmers who grow our incredible local produce right through to everyone who hosts an Eat Local Week event to drive those economic benefits to our region and put money in the pockets of our local operators.”

“Eat Local Week has grown from about four or five events when it started in 2010 to a program of 90 events, and this wouldn’t have been possible without the support of all the people who visit the Scenic Rim during Eat Local Week each year to make it worth our while. We thank each and every one of those visitors for the value they have brought to our region.”

Local dairy farmer and agritourism leader Kay Tommerup of Tommerup’s Dairy Farm said the economic benefits of Eat Local Week were invaluable year-round.

“The actual movement of Eat Local, beyond Eat Local Week, is huge for all of us. The publicity and the recognition that we have gained over the years means that we now have an audience of chefs, cafes and all those people who’ll come to us directly,” she said.

“The Scenic Rim brand really stands for something, and collectively we offer an authentic, character-filled experience through the food of our region.”

The Scenic Rim’s latest win is in addition to the ‘Outstanding Region’ award it won at the delicious. Produce Awards in Sydney earlier this year.

Scenic Rim Eat Local Week will celebrate its 10th anniversary from 27 June – 5 July 2020. For more information visit www.eatlocalweek.com.au/

The Scenic Rim is OPEN for business and eager to welcome visitors from near and far after bushfires devastated parts of the region.

The fires, which destroyed parts of the heritage-listed Binna Burra Lodge, started at Sarabah and spread through Lamington National Park and parts of Beechmont.

The disaster caused significant property losses in those parts of the region, but thankfully there was no loss of human life.

Firefighters were brought in from across Australia to battle the blaze, and outpourings of support flooded into the small community,

The disaster turned the small township of Canungra into a temporary headquarters for emergency services, volunteers and recovery agencies. Business owners and the community rallied to support one another through the unprecedented experience.

Binna Burra Lodge has vowed to rebuild. The Friends of Binna Burra Lodge are rallying support and all levels of government are stepping in as part of widespread efforts to help Lodge staff find new work and get the iconic site back up and running.

It continues to be an intense time for the parts of the Scenic Rim directly affected by the bushfires, and also for parts of the region which have been totally untouched by fire but have experienced a drop in visitors as a flow-on effect.

Open for business

The good news is the Scenic Rim is well and truly OPEN for business and everyone would love your support. Come have a great time in our beautiful region. Here are some ideas to get you started!

Nearly 36 years to the day they first opened, Ania and Phil Sowter are preparing to unveil their rebuilt The Polish Place Restaurant and Gallery.

It’s been two-and-a-half years since their Tamborine Mountain institution was destroyed by fire and the couple say they are excited to finally be able to open the doors and serve their much-loved Polish food to mountain visitors again.

Phil and Ania Sowter, The Polish Place.

“We will be open in early September,” says Ania.

“Coincidentally it will be nearly 36 years to the day that we first opened. In late 2016 fire engulfed our restaurant and art gallery and since then we have been planning and seeking the approvals to rebuild. We started building in January and the weather and the builders have been very kind to us and we are ready to open.”

Phil and Ania bought their block of land while on their honeymoon at Tamborine Mountain in 1981. They built the Polish Gallerie & Coffee Shop and ran the business in tandem with their day jobs as a school teacher (Phil) and a physical therapist (Ania).

The Polish Place Tamborine Mountain

Following the fire, the Sowters took the opportunity to update their five accommodation chalets on the property during the works. Ania says the new building looks similar to the original, and while there are some small changes, the aesthetic remains the same.

“We know that people love sitting on our beautiful large deck to take in the views and see the birds and wildlife,” she says.
“The restaurant will continue to serve the menu we have been known for as it was previously very successful.”

The menu features Ania’s Polish family recipes, including Polish dumplings, Polish sausage and roast whole duck for two with cherries. Ania admits that following the fire she and husband Phil questioned whether they should stay and rebuild.

They were encouraged by the support they received from loyal customers and supporters, as well as their daughters Belinda and Kathryn, who are both involved in the business.

“We’re very excited to be reopening and are looking forward to it, following a two and a half year break,” she says.

“Considering our age we had options and we were told by family members it was time to retire but then we had comments from customers and guests which prompted us to do it again. We just love being here, we love the lifestyle and running this business. We meet a lot of people and some of them become our friends, they come to visit and that’s what our life is all about.”
