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.

If you driving yourself, the GPS could be a deceiving & you might just land at the base of the mountains like we did... you need to take the long road & thereafter take directions for Tambourine. The place is simply beautiful, wish we hadnt wasted lot of time finding it. Lust greenery & great scenary even while driving around.... More

Being local on the Gold Coast things can get a little boring when you do them over and over again. Tamborine Mountain never gets boring! Whether you go up for a coffee and muffin on a Sunday morning or you take visiting friends up there for a trip. There are fantastic lookouts, great food and wine, the cheese factory (FANTASTIC)...
