Tamborine Mountain Scarecrow Festival

September 14, 2018 @ 8:00 am - September 16, 2018 @ 6:00 pm


From 14th to 16th September, 2018

The Tamborine Mountain Scarecrow Festival is an annual event to celebrate the great lifestyle we enjoy on the Mountain and want to share with our 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.


Saturday 11th August book a table at the Scarecrow Festival Trivia night at the Tamborine Mountain Bowls Club
Friday 14th September the scarecrow trail opens to the public and for judging. All scarecrows must be out by 10am with their entry number clearly displayed.
