Caravan & Camping at Mount Tamborine

Where Adventure Joins Nature

Thunderbird Park is nestled along the boundary of Tamborine National Park that stretches across 112 hectares of subtropical rainforest with lush palm groves and open eucalypt forest with grassy understories.

Our caravan and bush camp sites are a natural oasis where you can enjoy translucent rock pools along Cedar Creek flowing through the property whilst sleeping under the towering star-studded canopy of Tamborine Mountain.

We have a range of both powered and unpowered sites available with comfortable and modern amenity blocks, plus a communal camp kitchen. View all facilities and features below!
