Address - view on map
Cedar Creek Falls Rd
Tamborine Mountain, QLD 4272


Cedar Creek Lodges – the preferred rainforest and rural choice of many conference organisors because of our strategic location – only 50 minutes from Brisbane and Gold Coast CBDs.  Added to this, our conference clients know their delegates will experience the utmost comfort, finest hospitality and outstanding and rewarding adventure team building activities.


Cedar Creek Lodges and Thunderbird Park now combine the best of the past and present.  Steeped in the heritage of Thunderbird Park’s fascinating geological history;  the stylish accommodation, conference centres, restaurant, bar and terraces of Cedar Creek Lodges offer an intimate ambience with stunning interiors to appeal to the most discerning guests.



Delegate accommodation options allow for single, twin share or triple rooms Frog, Platypus, Lorikeet and Wallaby Lodges - each with a north easterly aspect.  Delegates will be inspired and stimulated for the day ahead by awakening to golden rays of sunshine and a spectacular vista of horses grazing in lush paddocks to towering rainforests beyond. 



The completion of the refurbishment of our ‘Rainforest Restaurant and Lounge Bar’ has taken our restaurant and bar to a completely different level.  It features a hexagon bar, stylish furnishings, Ax minster carpet, wood fireplace, pool and chess tables, a dart board and a state of the art ‘Nightlife’ virtual DJ system with optional corresponding video clips played on the new wall-mounted 60” TV.

Our multi award winning head chef, Kylie Burke, has created a number of fantastic menus available to all conferences . The Premium 3 course Dinner Menu has received rave reviews and delegates can pre-select three courses from this menu for their dinner.  The Value Saver 2 course Dinner Menu is a more economic package. A barbeque or pizza buffet (pizzas fresh from our new wood-fired oven) are also other options available in the Value Saver package.
