ABOUT THE MOUNTAIN.

Being bored one day we decided to get on the trike and take a run. We ended up at Mount Tambourine and enjoy the peace and quiet so much decided to spend a night there.
Mount Tamborine is the most northerly plateau, positioned directly west from Surfers Paradise. The Gold Coast is a comfortable 40 minutes drive from the Mountain. Brisbane, the Capital city of Queensland, is about a 1 hour drive away. The nearest International airport is Brisbane, however National travelers tend to land at Coolangatta airport, about 45 minutes drive from the Mountain.
The attractions of the district are the beautiful views which exist on both sides of the ranges, the number of rainforest areas with quiet streams and attractive waterfalls and the many craft and antique shops, galleries, wineries, tearooms and restaurants of the area's villages which attract an artistically/craft-oriented community and a tourism focus.

THE BIRD LIFE

Some of the birdlife we came across includes peacocks.

BUSH TURKEY

Bush turkeys can be found everywhere and they seem to think they own the place :)

    I bought some home-made fudge too, I couldn't believe they could make so many different flavors.
