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.

We drove up to Tamborine Mountain to visit Thunderbird Park and were absolutely stunned by the scenery. Definitely worth a looksee.

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.

Mount Tamborine is a perfect day-tour destination if you are staying on Gold Coast. It is easy to reach from the beach area, only about 30 km if i remember correctly. Get out early so you can see all the little charming things that Mount Tamborine can offer. There are both nature scenery and man-made sights, such as charming gallery... More

A nice way to spend a day is a visit to Mt Tambourine. There are many things to do from a visit to Curtis Falls or take in a winery and sample a drop or two or shop at the variety of fashion, gems stones and toffee shops. When your hungry there is a variety of dining options to suit... More
