Tamborine Mountain Scarecrow Festival

The Tamborine Mountain is your ideal getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city. It’s few kilometers away from the city, it gives you an excellent view of Brisbane and Gold Coast, and it’s the venue for one of the engaging and fun-filled festivals in the Hinterland called the Tamborine Mountain Scarecrow Festival.

What the Festival Is All About

The festival is quite young. It’s only three years old. However, because of the various activities and uniqueness of the event, it has already attracted scores of people from all over the world.

As its name suggests, it’s a celebration of scarecrows, which are actually in for competition. They are located in various points in a trail. For you to get a glimpse of them, you have to follow the path.

The event is usually held during the last weeks of June. In 2010, it was from June 25 to 27. There were more than 200 scarecrows that participated, and the best display won a thousand dollars and the title Best in Festival.

What to Do

You can actually participate in the Scarecrow Festival and get a chance to win the most coveted prize. There are so many ideas on how to make your own scarecrow, and it’s how you can get into the festival spirit.

If it isn’t your type, then you can just at least follow the trail. You can do so by walking, which will take you a full day, or by driving through a car or motorcycle. You can start anywhere, but it’s best if you begin at the visitors’ information center.

The trail is filled of picturesque sceneries, and you can drop by national parks where there are picnic areas and biking paths. You may also stop at wine cellars and vineyards and take a sip of their samples.

At Main Street and Gallery Walk, you can catch stirring performances of local bands and musicians. You can also take a look at the arts and crafts the Hinterland is very famous for.

Tamborine Mountain is simply breathtaking and the festival a good way to unwind and forget about your hectic lifestyle. Try picking up your accommodation for 2011 from We can arrange Gold Coast accommodation to suit your needs.
