    Camping at Mount Tamborine

    December 29, 2018 in Australia

    We have spent the last few days camping on Mount Tambourine, which is South of Brisbane and inland from the Gold Coast. The site was shady and we managed to get ourselves a very private spot. The kids have had great fun playing in the dirt and the river. We have enjoyed the relaxing fresh air and outdoor living and have been able to cook over an open fire.

    We saw some good wildlife- Bandacoot, wallaby, monitor lizard, stick insect, Cain toad, cockateel, laurequeets and cuckoburros. It was great!

    Yesterday we went to the Gold Coast to see the long stretch of beach there. It was busy, but the beach is so long it always has more space. It was mega hot so we had to stay in a restaurant until the sun eased a bit, then we all had fun in the sea and sand.

    Last night for New Year the kids did a performance show of some dances for us. We had YMCA, the Macarrenna and I like to Move it. Magnus danced so hard he got stitch and had to take a break and the girls filled in with some inspiring monkey type backing dancing. They have their parents dance talents....or lack of. Then they had fun with some sparklers whilst we adults drank some big pop to celebrate the new year. None of us managed to stay up until midnight, but Stew and Jamie were nearly there as they shared a bottle of red wine by the fire.

    It was a relaxing few days and the kids have been less argumentative as they have had more space and freedom.

    Glow Worm Cave - Tamborine Mountain

    March 16, 2017 in Australia

    Da wir in Neuseeland so sehr von den Glühwürmchen in den Waitomo Caves begeistert waren, wollten wir uns heute auch nochmal die Glühwürmchen Australiens ansehen😊
    Dazu sind wir nach Tamborine Mountain gefahren, wo es ein Glühwürmchen Forschungszentrum gibt, welches eine künstliche, von Glühwürmchen bewohnte, Höhle betreibt.
    Wieder war es wirklich schön die kleinen leuchtenden Tierchen 🌌 zu sehen, doch die 30 minütige Tour war kein Vergleich zu der Tour, die wir damals in Waitomo gemacht haben.
    Dennoch war der Regenwald um Tamborine schön anzusehen.🌴🌴🌴

    Die erste Schaukel der Welt?

    October 9, 2016 in Australia

    Noch schnell ein Nachtrag vom letzten Sonntag: ein Ausflug zum nahen Tamborine Mountain, ein Hochplateau mit Regenwald und Wasserfällen, das 45 Auominuten entfernt liegt (also direkt nebenan quasi). Jetzt kickt mich persönlich das Meer noch weit mehr, denn das habe ich daheim eben gar nicht. Aber so ein besonderer Wald lässt mich dann auch nicht kalt :) Luftwurzeln zum Beispiel sind echt toll zum drin rumschaukeln.

    Übrigens noch kurz zum Namen: Mit dem Tambourin (mir bekannt aus dem schönen Dylan/Byrds-Song) hat der Berg nur insofern zu tun, als dass es ein für englische Ohren angepasster Begriff des Aborigines-Wortes Jambreen ist, und das bedeutet wohl so viel wie "wilde Limette".

    Mt Tamborine

    July 13, 2018 in Australia

    A brief jaunt north this morning took us to Tamborine Mountain - a plateau of rainforest and waterfalls up a 17% gradient road. The rock pools at the base of Cedar Falls gave me an opportunity to get my feet wet and enjoy some spectacular scenery. En route back off the mountain, the Rotary Lookout have breathtaking views for miles over the low lying lands to the west.Read more

    Day on Tambourine Mountain

    April 27, 2006 in Australia

    We spent the day at Tambourine today. We went to glowworms caves. It was pitch black and we had to wear glowstick necklaces so we knew where each other was. We visited a a dairy and tasted lots of cheese. Then we did a walk and visited Curtis Falls.
