Join the Scarecrow Discovery Trail on Mt Tamborine
THE Tamborine Mountain Scarecrow Festival is an annual event to celebrate the great lifestyle residents have on the Mountain and to share it 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.
The competitions aren't confined to Scarecrows - there's colouring, poetry, entertainment and performance art, so there really is something for everyone.
Exploring the Scarecrow Trail and spotting the scarecrows is best done at a leisurely pace so you can enjoy everything Tamborine Mountain has to offer.
On Friday, October 16, the scarecrows will be out early, ready for the teams of judges to inspect and decide on winners.
The festival will run from the Friday, October 16, to Sunday, October 18.
