The German CuckooClock Nest, a famous tourist destination and cultural icon on beautiful Tamborine Mountain located in the Gold Coast Hinterland. Family owned with over 20 years of experience, this world renowned clock emporium is now operated by second generation clock enthusiasts alongside a horological inspired team of Tamborine Mountain locals.
The history of the cuckoo clock goes back to the early 17th century where it was believed to be very good luck to hear the cuckoo bird singing in the forest. So much so, that if one heard the cuckoo call, they would take their wallets out of their pockets and shake them above their heads. The farmers in the Black Forest (South West Germany) used logs to build the clock which housed the lucky call of the Cuckoo bird; and so the cuckoo clock was born! Centuries Later, the famous cuckoo clock is still very popular gracing the homes of countless countries around the globe.
