Day Tripping on Tamborine Mountain

Tamborine Mountain, the jewel in the crown of the Gold Coast Hinterland, has it all – rainforests and bush walks, cosy cottages to stay, quirky restaurants, cafes and tea rooms and country pubs with views, arts and craft shops galore, a Sky Walk, wineries, glow worm caves, a distillery and a whole lot of gorgeous pockets to explore.

With so many facets to this mountaintop hamlet there’s plenty to fill a day here, which is why it’s one of South East Queensland’s top day tripping destinations for young and old.
