If you visit the Gold Coast you must visit Mount Tamborine , we never miss this trip and we never get enough of the beauty of the tropical mountains and the waterfalls, we always walk and check out all the European style cafes and shops, our favourite is the chillian cafe, beautiful European atmosphere and very friendly service, must visit.

Definitely worth the drive up to the hinterland rather than just staying by the beach. Great views of the coast and Surfers and lots to do and see.

This walk in located in the Knoll Section of the mountain. Turn off main western road, (which is the main road through the mountain), into Main Street and continue past the shops where the road then becomes Knoll Road, then keep left where the road forks. There is a reasonable sized car park, toilets, and a picnic area offering views... More

This provide a good respite from the city. The trail is not too difficult to walk as there is a pathway on the waterfall route. Just remember to bring some water and your walking shoes.

I visited this mountain in Feb 2016 with my wife. The drive there from Gold Coast town area is around an hour, the road can get quite windy when moving up to the mountain.

Walked the very overpriced Skywalk, walked the gallery walk with overpriced cafes and shops with nick nacks. It was talked up too much and gives nothing special. Would not recommend for anyone under the age of 80.

Our family only spent a few hours in the area but this was enough to make us want to plan a holiday for longer to the area. Very picturesque lush green forest areas with quaint little towns. Plenty of B&B style accommodation. Will be looking into revisiting for sure

Take the time to visit this area. we had a great day touring this area and found many points of interest, including views over the hills and valleys together with small villages to walk around and find a place to sit relax and have a coffee.
