Hidden in the hills behind the Gold Coast, for over a century Mt Tamborine has provided a popular escape from the heat for Brisbane residents – typically it is 3 to 4 degrees cooler. Here, in what began as a timber logging area, you will find National Parks, streams and waterfalls, and lovely stands of sub-tropical rainforest, with plenty of places for tourists to visit. The entire area is a plateau some 500 metres high, and about four by eight km in extent.
Being a Brisbane boy originally, I have visited many times over the years. Unfortunately my most recent visit was, perforce, somewhat limited, but I hope this page gives some feel for this lovely area. Should you visit the Gold Coast and feel the need for an alternative to the endless skyscrapers, traffic and theme parks, Mt Tamborine could be the ideal answer. If you wish to stay longer, there is no shortage of accommodation choices.
- Pros:Still a lovely area
- Cons:Becoming busier
- In a nutshell:A great escape
I must make a shamefaced confession: although I’m happy to be a tourist, I’m really no shopper. Maybe you are. I suspect... more travel advice
