Cool up on the mountain

An easy drive from Broadbeach. Plenty to do all around the mountain. Plenty of nice places for lunch, shopping and a bunch of great little walks.

If you love SE Queensland and all it has to offer - the beaches, the sun, the relaxed lifestyle BUT cannot take the HUMIDITY... then Tamborine Mountain is for you. Just 45 minutes drive inland and up 'the hill' to the plateau is where all the magic happens. For a start it's 4-5 degrees cooler than the coast AND there... More

A nice easy drive up to Tamborine Mountain with spectacular views out to the Gold Coast. A nice stroll through the shops but make sure you have a look at the German shop with the cuckoo clocks and magnificent Grandfather clocks- amazing! Lots of nice eateries to choose from and lovely fudge for those with a sweet tooth. A look... More

Guided by GPS, took a drive up from Surfers Paradise on a Friday morning 2 weeks ago. Was cool all the way up windy, narrow road. Did not switch on aircond of car. Traffic wasn't heavy. We covered Skywalk (got lost with GPS initially), only 2 shops at Gallery Walk as we were rushing for lunch at Polish Place and... More

Really nice area with many individual shops. We visited The Glass Studio and they have pieces going for a song with buy one, get one free. The pendants, earrings are handcrafted and the designs are modern. Handmade crafts e.g. plagues, bookmarks are available and they are really lovely. We ate at Bavarian - great pork knuckle and beer at reasonable... More

This was a great escape on our last day of our holiday. Be warned it is much cooler up in the mountains! The gallery shops were good full of lots of different kinds of things to buy. Nice selection

Had a fantastic mid week break on Mt Tamborine. Booked a night in a cute hideaway retreat and enjoyed bush walks through the rainforest followed by winery tastings. The new vineyard restaurant we stumbled upon at Mason Wines was divine. A must visit!

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.
