After my first Marathon (Gold Coast 2015) I had a truly relaxing day out at Mount Tamborine and Lamington National Park. But don't get me wrong it is not boring at all --- it is refreshing and educational.

Had an enjoyable day your with Chris. Loved the funny commentaries along the way and the beautiful sceneries. Had a chance to throw a Boomerang and the bird feeding was a good climax to a fun day out. Free wifi is activated on the drive back so bring your iPads etc.

This is a review of the half-day, afternoon tour to Springbrook National Park. Our guide and driver was Robert. He seemed dull until we entered the national park where his depth of knowledge became evident. He was well informed about the history and biology of the area and he conducted himself with great calm and poise during our group's encounter... More

I took a full-day hinterland tour with Southern Cross, with Chris as our guide. Just before dropping us off at our hotel, he reminded us to check for our belongings but being the muddlehead that I am, I still managed to let my phone slip out of my bag and left it on the tour bus. It was not until... More

I had an enjoyable extended half day trip with Mike to Mt Tambourine. I really enjoyed Skywalk and the extended time in Mount Tambourine to have a leisurely lunch and stroll the shops. Recommended.

A great day with an interesting 4 wheel drive up a very bumpy hill. Delicious scones for morning tea. Guided rain forest walk. The driver,Trent, had lots of information and a great sense of humour. Thank you. Wine tasting and shopping at the gallery walk stop. An amazing lunch with Paul and a walk in the tree tops and feeding... More

We travelled from Brisbane on the train and were picked up at the Helensvale Railway Station by Royd ( he says "Hema " ) to his friends !! Once safely buckled up in the Luxury Mercedes 4WD we headed to Mt Tambourine - we went off road part way up the mountain and that was great. Near the top we... More

Southern Cross tours was phenomenal. The guide was knowledgeable, engaging and provided us with a tour unlike any other I have been on in the U.S. or on my travels abroad. It is affordable, and takes you through four different climate zones. The tour begins with four wheeling which is a rush, and ends with breathtaking views. You will not... More

I've been on a few day trips from Gold Coast and reckon the pick is the "Rainforest and Wildlife Tour – Window To The Wilderness" tour with Southern Cross. I like it so much the first time I've been back for the same tour twice again! The tripadvisor rating and awards are more than well deserved. A fun day in... More
