Tamborine Mountain - Discover the Bliss of Mountain Living

Tamborine Mountain encompasses everything a weekend holiday destination should. Positioned on a plateau some 70 kilometres south of Brisbane and 25 kilometres inland from Surfers Paradise, Tamborine is a vibrant mountain community that offers more than just stunning views.

Discover sub-tropical rainforests that are blessed with glorious waterfalls and lookouts that offer awe inspiring views from the hinterland to the sea.

The best way to discover the wonders of the rainforests here is to take a stroll along the Rainforest Skywalk. Positioned above 30 acres of magnificent rainforest, a stunning tumbling creek and numerous pristine rock pools, the Tamborine Skywalk is undeniably the best way to experience the rainforest. Visitors can explore the canopies in an entirely new light and discover a whole new world, living above the forest floor.

Tamborine Mountain is also famous for its National Parks and is home to an impressive amount of 7, all within 10 kilometres of each other. Many of these parks boast great walking tracks, with almost all of these under 3 kilometres, making them easy for all fitness levels. The walk to Witches Falls is a particularly popular track and rewards hikers with stunning views of an incredible waterfall.

For an entirely thrilling experience, head underground and embark on a journey through spectacular caves that are alight with the luminous glowing of the glow worm caves. While the caves were man-made, they appear incredibly natural and make for an experience that won't soon be forgotten.

Adrenaline seekers are also sure to find something to do, with hang gliding a popular option up on Tamborine Mountain. The launch site for this adventure sport can be found along Main Western Road, approximately 2.5 kilometres south of the Information Centre. Experience 360 degree views that stretch right to the coast and get a taste of what it is truly like to fly.

To further your adventures in Tamborine, head to the Thunderbird Park. Regarded as the place "where adventure joins nature", Thunderbird Park is an ideal spot for those of all ages. Tackle Australia's biggest adventure rope course, fossick for thunder eggs, go horse riding and finish off the day by dining in the licensed Rainforest Bistro.

After exploring the wonders of nature, head into the township and uncover a quaint selection of gift shops, antique boutiques, artistic hideaways and charming cafes. Browse the unique collectables, stock up on home-made fudge or find that piece of art you have long been searching for. There is something here for everyone!

Tamborine Mountain is the perfect destination to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. A Bed & Breakfast will be the perfect way to soak up the mountain atmosphere while a car rental will give you the freedom to explore the town's fantastic attractions.
