Spring Events

Tamborine Mountain Scarecrow Festival

11-20 September 2020

The Tamborine Mountain Scarecrow Festival is an annual event to celebrate the great lifestyle we enjoy on the Mountain and which we want to share with our visitors. It is essentially a huge Sculpture Show with the subjects being Scarecrow-related!

Everyone and anyone is encouraged to make a scarecrow and display it on the ‘Spot the Scarecrow Discovery Trail’ or in front of their homes or businesses. The Scarecrows on the Discovery Trail can compete in several categories, for great prize money and local fame. Young, old, clever and artistically-challenged all participate, and the result is hundreds of scarecrows that have to be seen to be believed. Follow the Scarecrow Discovery Trail and collect clues in the Scarecrow Trail Scavenger Hunt!

Tamborine Mountain Markets

Tamborine Mountain is home to a number of weekend markets that are a great source of fresh, clean country produce grown in the Gold Coast Hinterland's rich volcanic soil. Gourmet foodies on the go will appreciate the quality of locally grown produce and enjoy the flavours of freshly picked food and gourmet condiments.

Tamborine Markets make shopping an adventure and there is something for everyone. Kids enjoy the family-fun atmosphere and everyone loves a bargain. Shoppers will find a host of bargain-priced goods from handmade arts & crafts, to fresh produce, locally made cheeses, clothing and collectibles.

There are regular markets on every Sunday on the mountain, but you'll find several other regular markets held around the local area. Take a look at the list below for their location and times so make sure you plan a visit during your stay at Cedar Creek Lodges.
