Tamborine Mountain is about an hour's drive from the Gold Coast and is commonly referred to as the Hinterland. Technically it is not a mountain but a remnant rain forest plateau. It is generally several degrees cooler than surrounding countryside. There are several protected rain forest parks which have well maintained walking tracks. The most popular of these are at... More

This is a beautiful area of Australia well worth a vist. Lots to do on the Mountain and near the Mountain. Stunning view points over the gold coast. Lots of lovely restaurants. Waterfall, skywalk, gallery walk all worth a visit

Visited Tamborine Mountain on a clear warm winters day. What a lovely place, lots to see and do. Markets were great along with watching the hang gliders. It you are after some scenery don't go to the sky walk, it is much too expensive for what you can get for free from one of the many bush walks.

My wife and I have spent a number of pleasant times getting away from the bustle of the Gold Coast up on Tamborine Mountain. We always find it relaxing, refreshing and the fact that it's really only up the road, makes it really quite an easy get-away for us. You don't need to leave the mountain for anything once there,...

Tamborine Mountain, west of the Gold Coast, has some excellent lookouts and bush walks in the mountains. There are many walking trails of varied difficulty around the mountain. Obtain a brochure from any Information Centre, travel centre, or any accommodation office, and head up the mountain on any of three (steep) roads. There are many things to at Tamborine for... More

I have always preferred Tambourine Mountain to the madness of Gold Coast. Of course there isn't much to do for children here but it is a peaceful place to rest in between the visits to the theme parks. We have bought some lovely paintings in the local gallery.

Went one day and did the skywalk. Very good. Decided to go again tovisit Tamborine itself but "approved back burning" and an unapproved forest fire meant we couldn't. We're sitting on our apartment balcony in Burleigh Heads and can't even see the mountains for smoke.

Tamborine Mountain is refreshingly cool and green, there are many boutique hotels and lots of B & B's so it makes for a great romantic get away or retreat to recharge the batteries. There probably isn't a whole lot to occupy the kids. Most of the shops along Gallery Walk are not kid friendly, however lovely to wander through and... More

For those looking for change from hustle bustle of city life, Tambourine mountains allows you to appreciate nature undisturbed. The many natural parks are alive with wild life, trees and plants. Many natural trails for exploring are well marked and graded to suit people of all level of fitness. Do not miss the shops at the Gallery walk which are... More
