We were in good hands with Royd on our private tour to Springbrook & Natural Bridge and have seen much more animals and their habits than going unaccompanied. Thank your for a nice and amusing half day.

Pros: interesting tour and well informed guides. Fun activities like boomerang throwing and feeding wild birds. The tree top tour was fun too and the guide made it a bit of fun too. Food was great, the scones and the BBQ was well done. Lots of wildlife encountered and the tour stopped to point out wallabies and kangaroos, that was... More

My husband and I went on this tour particularly to see the glow worms and we were not disappointed. We saw hundreds of them as it was the right conditions for them at night. Our tour guide Chris was very knowledgeable and tried to find as many animals for us to see as possible as we walked through Mt Tambourine... More

The family of four were about to mutiny and insisted on a 'structured' day out. The brochures for the Southern Cross 4WD were in the lobby of the hotel we stayed at and I called Darran, who was most hospitable from the outset of the conversation. We chose to do the private 4WD tour of the Tambourine Mountains, Glow worms,... More

This was the highlight of my Gold Coast trip. I had only a day to spend as a tourist. I'm grateful I picked Southern Cross 4WD Tours as my option. Royd was knowledgeable, funny, and kind. They pack a huge variety into a single day.

An amazing experience on road with Chris from Surfers Paradise to Lamington Park, Hinze Dam, Springbook and O' Reilly's. Good stopovers for hot chocolate, lunch at an interesting Turkish restaurant. Very satisfying and a complimentary birthday cake was given upon request.
