Just a short drive to the south of from Brisbane lies the stunning and secluded Mount Tamborine. Known for its breathtaking views, must-see hikes, cute cafes and romantic restaurants and wineries, Mount Tamborine offers something for everyone — from couples after a romantic getaway through to families looking for a day out in the countryside.
Mount Tamborine has plenty of things to do, but they are spread out over a bit of an area, so one of the best ways to get the most out of a full-day trip is to do it with a hire car from VroomVroomVroom. Mount Tamborine is easily driven to from either Brisbane or the Gold Coast, both of which have rental car outlets.
With so much to do, we’ve broken the attractions and activities out into three sections: The great outdoors; The tremendous food and drink; and the best spots to enjoy the view out over a stunning part of Queensland.
When you visit Mount Tamborine, one thing’s for sure, hikes and scenery are aplenty. Top contenders include Tamborine Mountain, the popular Skywalk, Witches Falls, Cameron Falls, Tamborine National Park, Curtis Falls and the amazing glow worm caves. Impressive waterfalls, varied wildlife, and sweeping views out over the Gold Coast will leave you feeling like you’re in a secluded paradise.
After you’ve explored nature to your heart’s content, it’s time to relax! Tamborine is known for its world-class wineries, cafes and restaurants, and for good reason. Witches Falls, Canungra, Mason, and Heritage all host amazing wineries worth checking out. Fancy a romantic dinner? Pethers Rainforest Retreat will go down a treat. If you are around for lunch, check out Fox and Hounds English Pub.
You haven’t really been to Mount Tamborine if you haven’t sampled its stunning views. Rotary Lookout faces west while Beacon Lookout offers views of Brisbane. Robert Sowter Park is a great spot to see hang gliders. The great thing about Mount Tamborine is that even the drive up is filled with awe-inspiring views.
