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

Always a good place to take out-of-town visitors. Lots of interesting shops and plenty of good places to eat/drink. Good short walks can be taken at Curtis Falls or Tamborine Botanic Gardens

Having been living on the gold coast the last few years I love getting up this place for a day away from the coast. It is such a quaint little town. The main strip is Gallery Walk (took me a while to work that out the first time I went up there). There are wineries, and fudge shops and chocolate... More

My third trip back here and it still has not lost it's appeal. This last trip was on my own and Lunch and afternoon tea here was delightful. Well laid out and not cramped this area is the perfect tourist location. Take time to enjoy the views on the way up and back. The secret to this place is don't... More
