Proceed along that short road where you will reach the Main Western Road. Turn left and follow this road around. It turns into Alpine Terrace. The Escarpment is located at 123 Alpine Terrace, on the round-about, just past St. Bernards Hotel

Take exit labelled 'Mountain Resorts/Beaudesert Road' from Nerang which leads onto the Beaudesert-Nerang Road. Take the right hand turn signposted to Mount Tamborine onto Henry Roberts Drive. Follow this road up the steep hill, past the golf club until you come to a T-junction at the corner of Siganto Street and Prospect Street. Turn right, and the property is located at the first round-about, 123 Alpine Terrace.
Parking Off street gated private secure parking is available.
Things To Do Sample fabulous local wineries and breweries, taste our local cheeses made by our boutique cheese makers, take home a bag from our famous coffee plantation, buy a bottle of our world famous liqueurs, go for a walk through the tree top canopies in our Sky Walk, enjoy our delicious Mt. Tamborine fudge, escape into one of seven world heritage national parks, take a ride on our hop on and hop off shuttle bus which will call in to our reception to collect you, wander through our local art galleries and shops, have a swing in our local golf course or tennis courts.
