I had heard about Tambourine Mountain on previous visits to Australia but had never been. It is a volcanic plateau about 500 metres above sea level and an hour's drive from the Gold Coast airport. There are about 5,000 -7,000 people living there It is however about as far away from the Gold Coast in atmosphere as one can easily... More

The small group I was in (3 total) only spent an afternoon at Tamborine Mountain but we could have spent the whole day there. They have so many activities that I think anybody could find enough to do to entertain themselves for a whole day. The view to Tamborine Mountain from the south is spectacular. This is the way we...

While the road is pretty winding, and steep in places, it is worth the drive. It feels 10 degrees cooler as soon as you arrive. Quaint village seems like time stopped. Lots of arts and crafts, wineries, road side stalls and fresh produce. Plenty of great B & Bs and boutique accommodation.

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
