The Mount Tamborine Convention Centre started out as a working dairy farm. The land was purchased with funds from conventions and generous donations by supporters. A few key men who saw the potential of the property and envisioned a functioning Convention Centre to host the annual Keswick Easter Convention which until that point had been running under a tent a few miles away at Eagle Heights. As it turned out the property also held the potential for hosting individuals where they could camp to attend the conventions, which was a significant benefit to those travelling long distances to attend.

The Mount Tamborine Convention Centre started out as a working dairy farm. The land was purchased with funds from conventions and generous donations by supporters. A few key men who saw the potential of the property and envisioned a functioning Convention Centre to host the annual Keswick Easter Convention which until that point had been running under a tent a few miles away at Eagle Heights.  As it turned out the property also held the potential for hosting individuals where they could camp to attend the conventions, which was a significant benefit to those travelling long distances to attend.

After much hard work the property was finally cleared. An old aircraft hanger was transported from Archerfield in Brisbane to become the main Auditorium. More than 50 years after it all began it's still home to the Easter Convention, along with other annual events.

For anyone interested in the full story of the early days of MTCC, long-time supporter and early Convention committee member Gerhard Bargen has written a fascinating historical booklet called The Hidden Spring. It's well worth a read, and available from the MTCC Office.
