This is highly recommended. Our guide, Matt is prompt, friendly and very knowledgeable. You will learn a lot about the plants and insects in the rainforest. Even saw many wild wallabies by the road side. Such beautiful things. Our trip was during summer, so we had lots of sunshine. The 4 wheel adventure up the mountain was fun. Had a... More

What a great day. Mt tamborine in a 4wd. National park visit and Royd our guide covered everything from geology to funnel web spiders (including pointing them out). Good stops, BBQ lunch was amazing (thanks chef), followed by a dip in a Billabong, boomerang throwing and whip cracking. All topped off with wine tasting. Well done guys.

This is a must-try attraction especially with Southern Cross 4WD. Their guides are very knowledgeable, informative and most importantly they are fun people. I personally experienced it and I love it so much.

We had a light rain as we visited the Mount Tamborine rain forest with our guide Duff, but the weather was great for viewing the wildlife! The 4wd ride was also more exciting as we slipped our way up the mountain. The glow worms did not disappoint and were sparkling brightly! Great trip!

We were picked up from our accommodation and driven up a 4 x 4 track to Mount Tamborine on the Gold Coast. The driver of our 17 seater bus was extremely knowledgeable and very obliging. He had a good sense of humour and kept everyone amused. The lunch at Spring Gully was a bonus. The scenic drive through Canungra to... More

I had an amazing tour today to Tamborine rain forest with Southern Cross 4WD tours. I was on my own but felt completely comfortable. Our guide was knowledgeable and a bit of a trickster. I think everyone enjoyed themselves. Thanks heaps for this experience. Highly recomend

Visiting the Gold Coast from WA for a conference I had only 1 day to check out the Hinterland. The Office rang me the day before to let me know there might not be enough people on the tour and the chance to have it cancelled. I explained my situation and hoped the tour was going ahead. Positive conformation the... More

I loved this day trip. Trent our tour guide for the day was amazing with his knowledge an his willingness to help take photos. Lunch at the farm was amazing, a swim in the swimming hole is a must if your up to it. The best part of my day was feeding the parrots at O'Reillys. Would recommend this tour... More
