We took to all day Tamborine/Lamington National Park tour, 8am - 5pm. This is a great tour to see the countryside and some off the beaten path bush. Our tour guide, Trent, was great, very casual and provided lots of information. Morning tea was delicious with home made scones, lunch was also very good, cooked on the bbq outdoors. The only draw back to this tour is it's a lot of kilometers for one day. We were able to see and do all of the items listed in the brochure and weren't rushed to get to any one place at a specific time, but there is lots of driving time. All in all we would recommend this tour, just be prepared for some "seat" time.

A Quality Tour! I did the tour with my elderly Canadian Aunt (mid 70s). We both loved every bit of the tour. The on-time pick-up from our Hotel was appreciated. We were the last one's to be picked up and understandably the last to be dropped off. This gave us a bit of time to chat with the Tour Guide and Driver (Royd) who continually provided us with great information while joking along the way. All up about a 10 hour fun filled tour. The rough ride via a Fire Break up to Mt Tamborine was an experience and fun! We had perfect weather which contributed to the great views along the way. After morning tea we did the walk down to Curtis Falls along a track with Royd who was very informative. The walk back up the trail from the falls was a little difficult for my Aunt but very manageable at a slow pace. The lunch was excellent and not rushed. There was plenty of native wildlife including, Bush Turkeys, Kangaroos and Wallabies (…yes there is a difference!) and the journey of discovery in the sub-tropical rain forest was excellent. This was my second trip to Mt. Tamborine and O'Rielly's and would do it again next time I have visitors from overseas.

We went on a full day Mount Tamborine and Lamington Park tour, and experienced some of the best views around Gold Coast, the offroad ride near the mountain bike tracks was really fun. Our guide Royd was entertaining and knowledgeable, he even played a few pranks on us throughout the tour which made it a very personable experience. We had loads of fun, and would definitely recommend it to our friends. Thanks Royd!

It was a good first impression to start off when I received a text msg on my cell phone saying that our 4wd pick up has arrived at our apartment. We took a private glowworm tour with Darran, the orang gila (crazy man) to Mount tamborine. It was a first night experience on a 4Wd. Darran was friendly, humourous and crazy! He showed us around the village to see christmas lights up and was definitely knowledgeable. The rainforest walk at night and finding the glowworms was awesome. Besides the yummy light supper included in the package, its an interesting tour with fun on one hand and facts and findings on the other hand.
