Contour Rd, opposite Areca Court: This steep site of 3 ha is marked by very large fig trees in a patch of remnant rainforest, descending to a piccabeen gully at the bottom, near Kinabalu Drive.
There are some working tracks but they are not tourist grade. The regenerated forest is mostly mature for walking in some sections but keep an eye out for low branches. One of the interesting results of the regeneration has been the noticed return of log-runner bird activity in this area. Map

Contour Rd, 100 m. north of Shasta Drive, Eagle Heights: The terrain of this 1.5 ha site slopes steeply down to reach Kinabalu Drive. It features a piccabeen palm gully and some remnant rainforest.
Dirt road heading south from the bitumen at corner of Main Western Rd and Bartle Rd (on right at the corner if heading from North Tamborine past show-grounds). This is a quiet dead-end dirt road with some regeneration work with bird activity in early morning. There is also a cleared strip under power lines right through to where Main Western Road bitumen begins again at Whites Rd. Map
This is maturing into a beautiful stretch of native vegetation along a creek line with a walking path for locals' enjoyment. The Ohia Court creek line is one of the Tamborine Mountain Landcare Inc projects. It forms part of a wider corridor regeneration connecting the escarpment with three important ecological features: MacDonald Section Tamborine Mountain National Park, A National Park section along Wongawallan Road and a native forest along Contour Road.
