You might expect a spot called “Mount Tamborine” to attract a lot of folk singers. And maybe it does—if those folk singers also crave epic views of the Gold Coast and the Pacific Ocean from a height of 578 metres, that is. Even then they’d be in for a surprise, because despite its name and elevation, Mount Tamborine is actually a plateau in the lush Gold Coast hinterland.
If you’re visiting the Gold Coast or Brisbane, Tamborine Mountain makes a fabulous day trip. If you can’t wait to explore wild jungles that look like somewhere dinosaurs might still roam, then Mount Tamborine and the Gold Coast hinterland is a destination that stands on its own foothills. Either way, our Mount Tamborine holiday packages can help you get here in style. Pack your hiking boots and remember: Tyrannosaurus Rex can’t see you if you stand still!
Mount Tamborine is part of the Scenic Rim, and with a name like that, you just know it’s a great place to explore with a backpack and walking stick. Tamborine National Park is full of gorgeous waterfalls, creeks and bushwalk paths. Okay, you probably won’t catch any dinosaurs off-guard, but you might run into a land mullet, a red-legged pademelon (say that five times fast!), or the elusive Albert’s lyrebird. No, we don’t know what any of those things look like either, but keep an eye out anyway.
Our Mount Tamborine holidays are about the journey and the destination. And while you’re journeying through the area, check out the glow worm caves and the rainforest skywalk.
When you’re ready to come off the trail, grab one of our Mount Tamborine car rental options and head down the hill to the Gold Coast. Hang ten (or just hang out) with both local and international beach lovers at the many beachfront bars in Surfers Paradise, or bring your sunnies and enjoy the gleaming high-rises of Broadbeach.
Our Mount Tamborine packages are also the perfect start to visiting the foodie capital of Queensland, a.k.a. Brisbane. Nosh on some of the state’s best fish and chips or a big local steak. Drooling yet? So are we. If you want to check out our Brisbane packages , we won’t tell your personal trainer. Pinkie-promise.
