If you take a trip to the Gold Coast do yourself a favour and visit Tambourine Mountain.They have a little shopping village and glow worm caves.The view from the lookout was spectacular.We went with southern cross tours and a big thanks to Keith our tour guide.

Tamborine has many local attractions, from the winding roads, to elevated views over the Canungra Valley. Main street has a village feel with shops, novelties, food & drink abound. Thunderbird Park is great for a visit, stop and watch Hang-gliders jump off the cliff, floating majestically above, visit the monthly markets, or visit St Bernards Hotel for a great lunch,... More

We found the road up had a few too many curves (for my stomach anyway), but it was worth the discomfort. A very beautiful place and the skywalk was fabulous.

Fantastic rain forest areas where you can park and walk around. Lots of craft shops, but not particularly worthwhile. Come for the fantastic walks.

Traveled to Tamborine Mountain on the way back from holiday on the gold coast. Had lunch in Curtis Falls Cafe before walking to Curtis Falls, which was a lovely interesting walk. However not much water in the falls, but scenery great. While having lunch was informed that the skywalk & rainforest was worth a visit I was so glad that... More

The weather was perfect for a very scenic drive up the mountain. Te falls were not flowing but we still enjoyed the walk up and down, taking some lovely photos. Afterwards we ad lunch at a cellar door/cafe in the main street, it was delicious.

about an hour and half from Gold Coast. What a great day out. Suggest going on Friday Saturday or Sunday. Less people during the week, but many shops not open. North Tamborine Mountain is a delightful arty township. So many shops and lovely friendly people. Lots of cafes and restaurants. You can potter around for hours. Get up there early... More

Beautiful mix of rainforest, galleries, wineries and experiences. Great restaurants. Come watch the para gliders launch off the western side of the mountain and drift over the beautiful Scenic Rim. Leave the Mountain and travel west through the Scenic Rim region enjoying a wonderful mix of food, wine, arts, natural beauty and of course, the local hospitality. Great photography everywhere.

Whether you live on the Gold Coast or are visiting, don't miss getting up to Mount Tamborine. The drive itself offers spectacular views back to the Gold Coast and out to the mountains. The township has so much on offer from great restaurants, a brewery, quirky shops, lovely walks, wineries, fudge makers and amazing views. There is always something happening... More
