The Natural History Association has a collection of natural objects from geological to animal and bird nests as well as many information board displays. These are currently on display at the Tamborine Mountain Visitor Information Centre.
 
Originally the Tamborine Mountain Visitor Information Centre was developed and run by the Natural History Association. Our first building was a slab hut built from old sleepers in the park. Then with help from Council and the dynamic Dr Vonda Youngman, we constructed the present brick building with much local and voluntary labour.
 
The focal point for information about the Maintain and its natural assets is this well known building in Doughty Park. For many years it was manned by volunteer members of the Tamborine Mountain Natural History Association all year round.
 
The Centre (known to locals as the VIC) provides not only information to visitors on their destination or best scenic views but also an awareness of the value and beauty of our National Parks and the natural assets of our Mountain. The Centre also provides a comprehensive tourist information service on the whole Shire as well as the Mountain for our visitors, and is accredited with Queensland Tourism.
 
The centre now is operated by the Tamborine Mountain Chamber of Commerce but the NHA continues to provide educational displays, a comprehensive nature library, pamphlets, species lists and many books on sale including the Association's own "A Natural History 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.
