Ideally situated close to national parks, nature walks, botanical gardens, waterfalls, restaurants, the famous gallery walk, art & craft galleries, wedding venues, a coffee plantation, cheese factory, breweries, pubs or winery tours with pick ups and drop offs, there is so much to do for everyone.
Are you a daredevil? Not afraid of heights? Hitch a ride down the mountain with a local hang-glider – they take off from the western side of the mountain most weekends. If you prefer to keep your feet on the ground, there’s plenty of space for on-lookers.
Keep meandering and you’ll arrive at Gallery Walk in Tamborine Village, a run of intriguing shops, restaurants, cafes, wineries and art galleries. There’s something for everyone here. What will you take home? A German cuckoo clock, a piece of crystal, or a stunning original artwork by a mountain artist!
If food and wine is more your taste, you’re in for a treat. The mountain’s many boutique award-winning wineries, breweries (there are two) and distilleries, produce drops to appeal to most palates. Visit the Cheese Factory – try the triple cream brie. Scrumptious!
Some more activities for the sports minded – there’s fishing, a swimming pool, a gym, horse riding, bird watching, hang gliding, glow worm tours, thunder-egg fossicking, the adventure parc, hiking and much more.
Did you know - the Tamborine Mountain plateau is encircled by an escarpment with ten distinct vegetation communities, including National Parks with sub-tropical rainforest. The Mountain’s biodiversity is on a par with that of World Heritage listed areas such as the nearby Lamington National Park.
