Tracks Database (& kmls)
Please use any track information responsibly by using this guide:
Walk Softly: Please refer to QLD Government guidelines on Walking Softly to protect the environment.
Walk Safely: Tracks may not be well maintained so you should only walk the track with good gear (Example quick reference list) and bush-walking experienced support (Refer AAS) and not alone. Closed tracks are closed for a reason which usually is that it is considered UNSAFE for the public and would be dangerous to use.
Track Accuracy: Due to GPS Device data inaccuracy in forest canopy cover and other issues, the kml track files may be a rough drawn on mapping software by reference also to other public mapping data.

The Scenic Rim is an international biodiversity hotspot containing World Heritage Areas, National Parks and nationally, regionally and locally significant biodiversity. However there are also pressures of population growth, urban sprawl, land degradation, habitat removal and changing climatic conditions.
To manage these issues and protect biodiversity Council is developing a Biodiversity Strategy that will inform Council in its planning and operational activities, initiatives, targets and policies. Council is inviting public comment on the draft Scenic Rim Biodiversity Strategy which is a 10 year plan for the conservation of biodiversity in the region and articulates Councils vision for our region’s biodiversity. Feedback is invited during the consultation period concluding COB 30 June 2015.

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.
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.
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.
The aim of the Association is, to encourage an understanding and appreciation of the environment and national park values and provide interpretative information for visitors.
Articles about the Natural History Association and its member and affiliated groups.
Our list of quick general information on Tamborine Mountain Natural History matters:
(Our website contains substantially more data in articles, photos, mapping, and videos along with species and location database records. However, their quantity is best displayed on a larger screen than a mobile device and where you do not have additional data charges from your internet provider. Our longer term goal is put more of this infoprmation in a Mobile App for extended mobile access.)
