Want a nice drive to and up a lovely mountain, then take the 50minute drive to the flat topped Tamborine mountain.

The mountain has an excellent Gallery walk, full of Arts & Craft shops and more, so much here to see, it will keep you entertained for quite a while. When you are tired, you can have a nice meal or perhaps an icecream!

There are Wineries, excellent Lookouts & picnic areas, and lots of walking trails.
There are 7 national parks, within 10kms of each other. When the rain arrives, the waterfalls flow, at the moment its in drought, so no water. (2009)
Expect to see Birds & Animals, lovely tall Gum trees, and beautiful rainforest, with Tree ferns, Palms, fresh water streams with pebbles, oh, so pretty.
Markets are held here, produce is sold on the side of the roads..........
Hang gliders take off from the Mountain top............
and if you wish, you can stay in a delightful B&B on the Mountain top.

These are only some of the things to
keep you busy on the mountain top............
Don't forget........Summer is cooler here.......
AND......Winter is colder (enjoy a wood fire)

Either drive......or ......Take a tour.......
You will not regret a visit to one of my favorite places in Queensland


LOCATION ..70ks south of Brisbane
