We only had a day here with 2 young children and the visitor info book says you can't possibly do it all in one day... geez are they right!! We did the thunder egg fossicking (reviewed separately), skywalk and Curtis falls. The drive up and down the mountain alone are breathtaking with plenty of little spots to stop to appreciate...

Good location in Gold Coast hinterland with laid back lifestyle and great viewing. This area would undoubtedly get very busy during summer and spring but May was a great time to visit. Gallery Walk has a good variety of shops, galleries, cafes and general stores.

Mostly a place for day trippers from the Gold Coast. Apart from the paragliding launch there is little easily accessible natural beauty for non residents and visitors passing through. But worthwhile if you're on a short itinerary or just want to eat, drink and buy tourist items.

Unfortunately rain had flooded the glow worm caves and a tree had fallen on the sky walk but a 500 metre well formed track took us down to Curtis Falls which were huge and very photographic after recent rain. Tamborine Mountain itself has touristy shops, galleries and restaurants which didn't really do anything for me but the surrounding area is... More

This is such a beautiful area, packed with cafes, restaurants, galleries, vineyards, and other attractions like the Sky Walk and the Glow Worm caves. It's away from the Gold Coast madness and you could wander to your hearts content amongst little shops and galleries or stop and take in the vast panoramas either east or west facing. Just stunning.

Stunning scenery, great walking trails through rainforest along creekside to Curtis and Cameron Falls. Pricey tourist shopping.

Some reasonably short bush walks can be taken in the region. Visited both Curtis and Camerons falls plus some really nice scenic views to get great photos.

Amazing view and small quiet local community. Love the atmosphere. Have been here a few times before and always amazing. You can easily go to the information center and get help to find what you wanna see. Saw the glowworms and it was fascinating. Not that expensive. Worth a drive!

If your planning a trip to the Gold Coast, ensure you set aside at least 1 day to enjoy the Hinterland. No doubt there are plenty of tours that can be booked for the area ranging from touristy style tours to winery tours, but personally I always prefer self-guided tours. If your don't have a vehicle, consider renting a car... More
