Lookout!

Look out over the beautiful Gold Coast Hinterland. It is gorgeous. In the Summer, this area offers some relief from the heat and has numerous shops and restaurants to enjoy.

Watched the hang gliders and paragliders fly from the esplanade. Best time i found was before lunch on the weekend when it is warm. Lots of people watch. I like taking photos as everyone does. Not a big drive from either the gold coast or brisbane. Afterwards we like to have lunch and coffee at one of our favourites at... More

Lovely little town perched atop Mt Tamborine. Definitely check out the information centres as there is an abundance of waterfalls and walking tracks to make your day well worth it.

A lovely day out, quite a long steep drive to the top, but well worth it. It's a bit difficult to know when you've got to the top, other than seeing that the road then starts descending again.

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.
