Learning about nature on the mountainbuterfly113

The Tamborine Mountain NHA nature walks are short walks on Tamborine Mountain to discover local nature in birds, animals, insects, plants, fungi and general natural history. They are usually held once a month meeting at the Visitor Information Centre (Map) and finishing between 10 a.m and Noon. Bring binoculars, cameras, insect repellent, a drink and something for morning tea.

Our Walk Reports

The nature walk reports here may indicate Report in Progress where it may take some time to complete the report awaiting feedback to establish species names. They remain displayed for photos and other information which may be useful to some readers in the meantime.

  • Upcoming Events - notified by email if you request addition to the email group via the Contact Us Form here. 
  • In the report articles, if you click on the images you will get a larger pop-up image display. Images used in the reports are also added to the Web Gallery here

  • For older reports the "Preview" box opens a pop-up of the PDF version of the report that you can download with the menu link at its top right.  Or you can see and download all PDF files of Nature Walk PDF reports here.

  • The list of noted species is at the base of the report or its own Tab in more recent reports. Green linked words take you to Wikipedia for those words but not all species details are available there.

  • Eventually, all noted species will be added to our Observations records in our Web Database. (No link yet as currently restricted access but hopefully members can access later this year)

  • Visit our Map of our walk reports where clicking on a place marker gives a pop-up introduction and link to the report and a directions finder box.caterpillabug102

Why does attentiveness to nature matter? In a very fundamental sense, we are what we pay attention to. Paying heed to beauty, grace, and everyday miracles promotes a sense of possibility and coherence that runs deeper and truer than the often illusory commercial, social "realities" advanced by mainstream contemporary culture. ... Our attention is precious, and what we choose to focus it on has enormous consequences. What we choose to look at, and to listen to--these choices change the world. As Thich Nhat Hanh has pointed out, we become the bad television programs that we watch. A society that expends its energies tracking the latest doings of the celebrity couple is fundamentally distinct from one that watches for the first arriving spring migrant birds, or takes a weekend to check out insects in a mountain stream, or looks inside flowers to admire the marvelous ingenuities involved in pollination. The former tends to drag culture down to its lowest commonalities; the latter can lift us up in a sense of unity with all life.
