Went to Lamington and Tamborine Mountain on a full day 4WD tour. The ride was awesome. We got to see some beautiful scenery, and quite a bit of Aussie wildlife. Morning tea and lunch were fantastic. Great food, great service, great location. Got to learn how to crack a whip and throw a boomerang; that was really fun. Better take your camera, because you'll want to capture the amazing landscapes and views, as well as the cool activities such as bird feeding. Our tour guide, Darran, really knows his stuff and managed to make this day tour fun and informative. This tour definitely met my expectations, and more.

Gold Coast Tamborine Mountain 4WD Tour and 2x Rainforest Walks

If you want to see as much as possible in a day then a Tour with SC4WD is a MUST, not only is the service outstanding but Darren (owner of the company) changed and altered the Tour to suit our needs so that we were spending more time doing the things we love, he even arranged for an extra Wine Tasting session if we wanted!

Family run businesses are always the best as you really do get a much friendlier and personal service and the prices for what you get in the day are very reasonable.

One of our best days out from the Gold Coast recently was when we went with Southern Cross 4WD Tours into the Hinterland. Our driver/ guide, Royd, was great – his love and knowledge of the areas we went to was shared with his passengers in a humorous, informative way. Our unconventional approach to Mt Tamborine was via an exciting 4WD track through forest. Scrummy scones for morning tea at an avocado plantation, where we met Darran and Steph – the enthusiastic and friendly owners of the business .
Then an enjoyable drive through Canungra to Spring Gully, at the foot of Lamington National Park. Lots of fun trying our hands at whip cracking and throwing boomerangs. Believe us , it wasn’t as easy as Royd and Anthony (another driver / guide) made it look. Delicious BBQ and fresh salads for lunch, then onwards – this time to O’Reillys Plateau. Royd had hawk eyes, and when the vehicle slowed to a stop, we would see wallabies, kookaburras or kangaroos in the surrounding bush. O’Reillys Plateau a very interesting area – opportunity to feed native birds in a specified area; and appreciate the rainforest from a canopy treetop walk. Even climbed 30m up a ladder attached to a tall tree for a panoramic view over the forest.
Thanks so much for a very memorable day.

We really enjoyed Royd & Darran's sense of humor, their rapport with people and their ability to share their talents! The scones were great, the lunch meal was delicious! Marcus & Korey enjoyed their experience especially the whip cracking and boomerang throwing! They are in the right profession! The scenery was fantastic! All this combined is what made the tour so enjoyable.
