Cedar Creek Falls is one of Mount Tamborine's most popular tourist attractions with stunning views over the open canyon, waterfall and rock pools.
Located in Tamborine National Park, just a 15min walk from Thunderbird Park, visitors can enjoy one of the most stunning waterfalls in the region. Especially in the warmer months when the temperature is several degrees cooler on the mountain.

Sitting at the base of Tamborine Mountain, just a 20min walk from Thunderbird Park, visitors can enjoy one of the most stunning waterfalls in the region. Cedar Creek Falls are a secret – well, they're supposed to be. Many people live on the Gold Coast their whole lives without any knowledge of this little diamond of a location. When the falls are heavy and gushing into the rock pools, the water swirls fast and furious like a cold bubbling spa. These natural rock pools make for a brilliant swimming location in warmer months.
Thunderbird Park is centrally located amongst a mind boggling number of National Parks and is a favourite Gold Coast Hinterland attraction as it is absolutely teeming with the ultimate wonders of the very real natural Australia.
It's a trip of discovery surrounded by some of the world's most splendid and tranquil national parks and state forests. Giant fig trees, towering eucalypts, tropical tree ferns and palms attract colonies of koalas and other Australian animals.
Bush walking through Tamborine Mountain takes walkers on a timeless journey, with natural beauty in a story book setting. Enjoy crisp clean air and huge trees weighed down with magnificent Hoyas, wisteria and other floral species add to the irresistible allure of Thunderbird Park. From high plateaus to tumbling waterfalls, virgin rainforests to natural Australian bush lands, bushwalkers will enjoy a limitless variety of vegetation.
Thunderbird Park has kangaroos, wallabies, platypus and koalas in the wild as well as an endless array of Australian birdlife. Added to this, there are horse riding trails and natural swimming rock pools on Cedar Creek and at Cedar Creek Falls.
Bush walking is encouraged and bush walking courses are open 7 days a week. We highly recommend it is only done during day light as the tracks are unsafe at night.
There are no fees to explore the gorgeous walking tracks through Thunderbird Park however guided walks, which add to the experience, are available at a small cost.
