The Tamborine Mountain Scarecrow Festival is an annual event to celebrate the great lifestyle of the Mountain and to share with visitors. It is essentially a huge Sculpture Show with the subjects being Scarecrow-related!
Everyone and anyone is encouraged to make a scarecrow and display it on the ‘Spot the Scarecrow Discovery Trail’ or in front of their homes or businesses. The Scarecrows on the Discovery Trail can compete in several categories, for great prize money and local fame. Young, old, clever and artistically-challenged all participate, and the result is hundreds of scarecrows that have to be seen to be believed.
