Beautiful rainforest, tall trees. Not a lot of water in the falls. Short walk to the falls. Nice 2.5 km return trip from just a short distance from the falls.

Great views at certain points, there's lot of wildlife and nature. Would love to come back and explore the park further as we only covered a very tiny part.

Beautiful, scenic walks around an amazing part of Queensland. Free parking and plenty of cafes at the end of the trails with a mind blowing drive to the top of the mountain. Awesome views back down to the gold coast on the drive down too.

We did a tour with Lee Rossow from Adventures in Nature 24/7 and had an excellent time. We did some wine and spirits tasting, we went to the cheese factory and had some cheese and we went to the fudge shop (all I can say about this is YUM YUM YUM) and we went to all the little shops. The... More

The place is really quite oversold, especially the rainforest tree top walk. Very disappointing. You can definitely enjoy better tree top walks in other parts of the world, like Singapore's Hort Park for FREE. If you're from Asia and planning to go up a mountain or lookout in Gold Coast, Glasshouse Mountain will definitely be a better consideration.

The mountain itself is beautiful with stunning views and amazing scenery. We visited Curtis Falls and enjoyed doing the longer walk. The shops and eateries were tired, unappealing and very tacky. I had been to Tamborine Mountain a few years back and had enjoyed Gallery Walk very much. All of the artisans have disappeared and been replaced with cheap touristy... More

We drove up the mountain from the Gold Coast side via Oxenford and then came down back to Brisbane via North Tamborine and Waterford. The way back was a much more windy drive that the short trip up from Oxenford but considerably more attractive with lovely, almost rainforest-like scenery on the way down. I preferred driving down this way -... More

I now live at Tamborine Mountain and I can honestly say iy is a fantastic place to visit. It is huge, there are so many things to see and do, you would need at least a week to see only some of it. The wineries are fantastic and going for a walk having a picnic, shopping so much to see... More
