Scarecrow Festival

Mt Tamborine 2013 Scarecrow Festival Dates: October

‘Scarecrow Festival on Mount Tamborine’

Scarecrows on Tamborine Mountain.Family fun on Mount Tamborine!

The inaugural Scarecrow Festival on Mt Tamborine in 2008 was a huge success.   Since than every year over 200 scarecrows line the 14 km circular trail and add some extra sparkle to beautiful Tamborine Mountain. Visitors are treated to a host of activities, street entertainment, book readings, buskers, VIP’s, and of course the stars of the weekend ‘ lots and lots of scarecrows in all kinds of disguises! Both visitors and scarecrow builders are sharing lots of prizes, so what are you waiting for – build a scarecrow!

Of course shops, accommodation, cafes and other facilities join in the fun and make this festival a weekend to remember and an ideal family outing. A visit to Mount Tamborine, in the lush Gold Coast Hinterland, is always rewarding, and now with the additional reason to say hello to all those interesting characters and maybe winning a great prize as well, there is no excuse to stay at home! Every year new and exiting scarecrows pop up on the Scarecrow Trail and new activities are on offer for the whole family. Come and visit us again on Mount Tamborine in 2013 for the sixth (even bigger and better!) Scarecrow festival.
