The Tamborine Bush Volunteers (TBV) and the Tamborine Mountain Natural History Association (TMNHA) hosted a camp for over 70 people held at The Beacon on Tamborine from 27 - 30 March.


Each year the National Parks Association of Queensland Inc. (NPAQ) and its twelve affiliated organisations get together for a mini-conference and fun time on the weekend closest to the date of the gazettal of the first national park in Queensland, Witches Falls.  These weekends have been held for the past 30 years and attendees come from as far away as Fraser Island to the north and Lake Broadwater (past Dalby) to the west.

Attendees visited the centenary celebrations held at Witches Falls Section on Friday 28 March.  Three organisations, TBV, TMNHA and NPAQ manned information stands at the event.  Guided walks were enjoyed in several sections of Tamborine NP - Witches Falls, The Knoll, MacDonald, Palm Grove and Joalah.  There were also two bird walks and a tour of the TBV revegetated area at Pirralilla.  Evening entertainment included a sunset happy hour, a CD viewing of local birds and wildlife plus a dinner and bush dance.  There was also time for visiting local attractions and businesses.

At the formal meeting on Sunday morning, all organisations presented reports and senior officers from Environment Protection Agency gave presentations on past and future issues facing national parks in Queensland.

These conferences bring together environmental and nature based groups for discussion and networking.  The social aspect is enjoyed by all.The Tamborine Bush Volunteers (TBV) and the Tamborine Mountain Natural History Association (TMNHA) hosted a camp for over 70 people held at The Beacon on Tamborine from 27 - 30 March.

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.
