Happy Valentine’s Day for those of you who celebrate it! And for those who don’t believe in it, I hope you had a fun and adventurous weekend!
L took me to a small town on the top of a flat mountain south of home, called Mt Tamborine. He picked this spot as there is a high ropes/tree top challenge on the mountain, and I had been wanting to do one of these circuits for a while. While, I don’t have a photo of our adventure among the trees, I do have photos of the rest of the trip.
The weather throughout the trip was nice – sunny and warm, and during the evening it was cool. We ended up going to the Botanical gardens, which are small, but very cute and manageable. We went for a walk after a long day at the tree top challenge. This was good for stretching our leg muscles and ensuring that we wouldn’t be (too) sore the next day.
There were little girls walking around with their father, and they were drawing love hearts in the gravel. I wonder if they knew what day it was?
We got to see a few birds, I’m not sure what the first one here is called, but this Kookaburra sitting on the bench was so chilled even when we walked past it.
This little walkway caught my attention. The door to the unknown?
Beautiful tall Gum trees everywhere!
There even was a little Japanese garden set out towards the back of the gardens.
This bridge is probably the most photographed thing at the gardens. The reflection looks fantastic when you get the lighting just right.
My favourite part of the garden is the rose garden. For some reason, roses remind me of my mother…I don’t even think she likes roses, but they do.
We walked past this vineyard, the Mt Tamborine Vineyard, which is on the main street. It was a lively place that has a restaurant and wine tasting – go check it out if you get the chance.
Eventually we left, and made our way home. Of course, we couldn’t leave without seeing the sunset, which were were able to see from a little look out at a BnB. This was kinda nice as an ending to a little, relaxing trip.
