I went to the Gold Coast for the first time end of January to visit family after spending one week in Nelson, NZ. What a trip. Went to Tamborine Mountain with my Grandma. What a day. We did some shopping at the shopping village at the top and then did the skywalk. It was an amazing experience. Def recommend.

Did the skywalk and was brilliant, and even the drive up there has a beautiful view so make sure you take the time so you can stop and enjoy the views along the way. There are many walking tracks for all levels of fitness. Also make sure you leave time to do the Gallery Walk on the way home, it... More

What a place, stunning waterfalls, a lovely walk, and such beautiful surroundings. There is an abundance of wild life, wide, well thought out pathways, which are also suitable for buggies and those in wheelchairs. There are toilets nearby, and a wonderful selection of cafés, local fudge shops etc all in easy walking range.

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

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.
