Great bushwalks and beautiful scenery. Walks are not to long if you're short for time. I never leave North Tambourine without stopping at the local Irish Pub for a pint of Guinness. Also, there's a great spot to watch the sunset on the hillside just...More

Easy, the roads are just fine and many vehicles go up and down daily. Kia is going to do well, just take the Oxenford Tamborine road. Good luck, enjoy.

Tamborine mountain glow worm? (3 Replies)
Hi pls advise id its ideal to go to the Tamborine mountain glow worm in a rainy weather? Heard its indoor so if its raining is it ok?

Response fromsweetbiscuit21|
It is in a manmade cave so yes, it is fine to go as you are inside, but if it is raining/foggy, then you are missing out on the wonderful views from the top of the mountain. Then again, you might just want to find a café with and open fire and enjoy a cozy winter feeling. cheers.

Yes, you can do any of the national parks on your own. The only thing is that you will certainly need a rental car because no public transport will take you there, or else, you will need to join a day tour. For Movie World, that'll basically be a day on its own, unless, you really don't plan to spend too much time there. Byron Bay - One day by itself. You could join whale watching + Main Beach together (Why do you want to visit Main Beach? I don't mean there's anything wrong with...More
