Tamborine Mountain Gallery Walk Precinct
Tamborine Mountain Gallery Walk Precinct (the Precinct) is an important regional visitor destination located on Long Road on Tamborine Mountain, on a State controlled road.
It is a pedestrian shopping and hospitality precinct that services Tamborine Mountain locals and visitors with more than 70 speciality shops in one block.
Over the past 20 years there have been a number of projects that identified issues and opportunities to improve the Precinct.
Without external funding these projects haven’t been able to progress.
Council has now received funding from the Queensland Government’s Building Our Regions program to deliver a concept design and a business case, which will directly support future funding applications to all tiers of government.
Council will host several opportunties in early 2022 for you to share your ideas for improving the Gallery Walk Precinct.
We are currently refining two concept plans based on community, stakeholders and visitor feedback including pedestrian and traffic accessibility, public amenities, and the streetscape.
Two different concept plans will be presented for community consultation in February 2022.

Consultation pre-concept (August- September 2021)
Survey, Listening Post, Facilitated Meetings
Before any concepts were designed, Council surveyed the community and asked these key questions of users of the Gallery Walk Precinct.
- What do you value about the area?
- How do you use it?
- What would you like to see changed and what do you think should stay the same?
Survey closed Sunday 5 September 2021.
There was also a Listening Post in Rhoda Rushbrook Park on Tamborine Mountain on Saturday 21 August for locals and visitors to the Gallery Walk Precinct to share their ideas.
Council also hosted facilitated stakeholder meetings with representatives from community groups, Gallery Walk businesses and landlords to help the project team evaluate the best options for the concept designs.
The concept designs will involve continued consultation with the Department of Transport and Main Roads because Gallery Walk Precinct is located on Tamborine Mountain’s Long Road, which is a State controlled road.
Feedback on concept designs (February 2022)
Concept designs will capture the community feedback and identify options for a broad scope of works and provide the general look and feel of what the Gallery Walk Precinct could offer. Two concept designs will be available in early February for feedback. They will also be available for viewing via an Open House and at two static displays on Long Road.
Council will provide opportunities to seek feedback on the two concept designs.
- What do you think of the concept designs?
- Have they addressed the overarching themes from community feedback?
- What features or elements do you like or dislike, or think are missing from the design?
Final concept presented
Following the February 2022 consultation, Council will decide and present back to the community the final preferred concept design in early 2022. The final preferred design concept will also be available for viewing via an Open House and at two static displays on Long Road, Tamborine Mountain.
To ensure the final concept design provides good value for money, a costed business case will be prepared that will outline the construction, operation and maintenance costs over the determined life of the project and compare these to the tangible and intangible benefits the Gallery Walk Precinct can bring in terms of economic, social, environmental and cultural improvements.
This project is focused on the end goal of sourcing the funding needed for specific improvements and upgrades to Tamborine Mountain Gallery Walk Precinct.
Using the business case Council will seek grant funding from all tiers of government to progress to the detailed design and construction phase.
