Holidays in Tamborine National Park Palm Grove Section

Holiday Travel Guide
Tamborine National Park Palm Grove Section featuring forests

Wander through groves of towering piccabeen palms, ancient strangler figs and ghost gums on the rainforest trails teeming with birdlife.

Hiking trails in the Palm Grove Section of the Tamborine National Park show the diversity of South-East Queensland’s flora, from dry ghost gum forest to stands of sub-tropical fig tree and piccabeen palms. Immerse yourself in groves of tall, thin piccabeen palms in the Mount Tamborine rainforest and gaze over vistas of rainforest-covered valleys and hills.

The Tamborine National Park was Queensland’s first national park, initially consisting of the Witches Falls section, proclaimed in 1908. The Palm Grove Section was added to Tamborine National Park in the 1920s. Explore this section on the 2.6-kilometre (1.6-mile) Palm Grove Circuit Track or extend your walk for the 4.5-kilometre (2.8-mile) Jenyns Circuit.

Along the Palm Grove Circuit, note the ancient mossy trees, including strangler figs, hoop pines and yellow carabeens, a species with large buttress roots. These trees can live up to 800 years. Follow the trail and enjoy glimpses over the rolling green hills to the sparkling waters and skyscrapers of the Gold Coast.

The additional length for the Jenyns Circuit includes dry eucalyptus forest, grey gums, hoop pines, brush box and very old cycads. Pack a thermos and enjoy a picnic in the beautiful green park before setting out on the tracks.

Watch the treetops for red and blue rosellas and rainbow lorikeets. Listen for rustlings in the ferns and brush to spot small marsupial pademelons and huge black skinks known as land mullet.

The temperature is often much cooler beneath the canopy of the rainforest, so pack an extra layer to keep warm while you walk. The Palm Grove Section trails are not too challenging but it is always advisable to wear good shoes and carry water while hiking.

The Palm Grove Section of the Tamborine National Park is a wonderful introduction to the stunning natural beauty of the Gold Coast hinterland region. Enjoy the short walks, particularly appropriate if you have limited time.
