TBV celebrates 20 years - Len and JohnThe Tamborine Bush Volunteers (TBV) have been caring for Tamborine National Park since May 1988.  To celebrate the 20 year anniversary of the group, an informal afternoon tea was held recently at the picnic grounds at The Knoll Section of Tamborine National Park.  This event brought together some past and present members and local supporters.


TBV celebrates 20 years - TBV GroupJohn Johnstone, former Ranger in Charge of the QPWS base on Tambourine Mountain saw the benefits of having a volunteer group to assist him with tasks that rangers were unable to fit into their work program.  John still lives on Tamborine Mountain and is an enthusiastic supporter of the work done by the TBV.  Everyone welcomed the opportunity to meet up again.

The TBV meets for a working bee on the first Saturday of each month and welcomes new members at any time.   We have members of all ages, from the young to the mature and each member works at his/her own pace and puts in the time that can be spared.  If you are interested, please Contact the TBV Coordinator

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.
