Mount Tamborine

Drag yourself away from the beach and head to the hills, where fine wines, inspiring crafts, soaring forests and plunging waterfalls await.

The plateau-topped mountain shelters a small hamlet of the same name. Explore this artists’ enclave and find boutique galleries and studios or dine in cafés lauded by locals. Wineries, breweries and distilleries all take advantage of the pristine air and mountain streams. When it comes to scenery, Mount Tamborine steps up. Soar above the treetops on a skywalk trail or delve into glimmering glow-worm caves. Annual festivals and local gigs will have you toe tapping, Tamborine-style.
