Mount Tamborine is a great place to visit, many national parks and waterfalls, cheeseries, wineries, gift shops, art museums and restaurants. Loads of accommodation to choose from and a range of budgets.There is something on offer for everyone. I visit the mountain quite regularly and enjoy it every time, been there 2x since February this year.

A lovely place away from the heat of the coast. Varied things to see and do; Cedar creek for the goannas, shopping in Gallery Walk, back to nature in the Botanic Garden. Great views everywhere.

Lots of specialty shop ( English sweet shop etc) and restaurants plus specialty shops-all with lovely walks- in a cooler climate too. Tambourine was settled by Europeans and the culture and feel of place reflects this difference. Its a nice place to stay a night too with B&B and vineyard accommodation- their website is good.

A must do in Queensland! I had a great day mooching around the gift shops, eating scones and cream, talking to the shop keepers and walking the Skywalk amongst the trees! The drive itself is amazing - just wish I had hired that soft top car.

There is lost here for everyone. Bush walks, adventure sports, shopping, dining, fabulous scenery and camping and up market cabins. Great for a family getaway. Busy during weekends and public holidays, maybe a bit too busy so avoid if you can.

Travelled up to Tamborine Mountain just wanted a day visiting the various craft markets, coffee and lunch. There was certainly plenty to look at. We went on a Wednesday, parking was not easy but we spent the time looking at all the craft shops, old houses converted. As expected the pricing is above average, even a hotdog though very fresh...

Look out over the beautiful Gold Coast Hinterland. It is gorgeous. In the Summer, this area offers some relief from the heat and has numerous shops and restaurants to enjoy.
