Dig it Tamborine Mountain

December 1, 2023 @ 8:30 am - January 31, 2024 @ 4:30 pm

Dig It at Tamborine Mountain

Australia’s first ever mini-excavator park Dig It at Tamborine Mountain just an hour from Brisbane and the Gold Coast is ready for the holidays!

The hard hats are hanging, the high viz is shining and the dozers are ready for their little drivers!

Dig It Tamborine Mountain

Dig It has seen thousands of kids have the ‘best day ever’, sitting in the driver’s seat, operating their own mini-excavator, just like a real construction worker, in an outdoor construction zone on a mountain famous for rocks, and at a place that’s legendary for families, Thunderbird Park!

The park is custom-designed for both children and their parents who love to play (who doesn’t?), featuring a range of activities that are fun, educational and engaging, kids learning about the construction industry, earthworks, engineering, building, the importance of safety, and teamwork. And there’s not an iPad or Screen anywhere!

Digit Tamborine Mountain

The superstars of Dig It are the nine, CAT 1.7 tonne mini-excavators built right here in Queensland. They are the real deal, with hard hats and high vis gear required onsite. The kids experience sees children sit the driver’s seat alone or on the lap of their parent or carer, to try a range of skills, from digging up the dirt, to using a claw to stack and move tyres, or using a hook.

Dig it is at home at the famed Thunderbird Park, an adventure park with all levels of accommodation, from luxury at Cedar Creek Lodges, through glamping, cabins, creekside houses to camping. What’s even better, Dig It is 100 per cent accessible to all abilities and needs.
