TM Contour 1 - 2014-07-25 NWThere are some working tracks but they are not tourist grade. The regenerated forest is mostly mature for walking in some sections but keep an eye out for low branches. A walking line of ribbon markers is available from a recent species survey of the site. One of the interesting results of the regeneration has been the noticed return of log-runner bird activity in this area.

Contour Corridor Map

 

 

 

Contour Road is one of Landcare's many regeneration sites and an important part of the organisation's plan to establish and maintain natural vegetation and wildlife corridors across the mountain, based on water courses.

TM Contour 1 - 2014-07-25 NWLook over the edge of this steep site and you'll notice a small creek that runs along the back of the houses at the northern end of Long Road. This joins with a second creek and flows through the Botanic Gardens. Regeneration of these creeks to their natural state is a major step in developing vegetation and wildlife corridors in this part of Tamborine Mountain

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.
