Just forty minutes from the Gold Coast and about an hour’s drive from Brisbane, you’ll find beautiful Tamborine Mountain. This table top mountain is 550 metres above sea level, nestled in a region called ‘The Gold Coast Hinterland’. Here, in the cool greenness of nature, many wonderful spots long to be discovered; from sparkling waterfalls and sun dappled National Parks to markets, wineries and the cutest little stores and cafes.
With Tamborine Mountain as your home base, you can enjoy all that the mountain has to offer – plus, you are within easy reach of many other exciting destinations. The Gold Coast’s theme parks are just 20 minutes down the road and Whale Watching Charters plus the iconic Surfers’ Paradise Beach are no more than a 40 minute drive away.
When you choose to stay on Tamborine Mountain, you can plan some exciting day trips too and we have created some useful maps for you Map Guides that will help you do so. Enjoy a day discovering Brisbane, visit Springbrook National Park or drive south to Australia’s most easterly point at Cape Byron Lighthouse in Byron Bay. Each of these destinations makes for a memorable adventure.
There are also many festivals, special events and concerts that take place on and around the mountain. The Gold Coast Marathon for example, the Byron Bay Blues Fest, the Gold Coast’s Glitter Festival and the Scenic Rim’s Eat Local Week are just some of the events on our region’s busy calendar.
