This tour allows guests to get a glimpse of what the Gold Coast Hinterland and Scenic Rim Region has to offer. If you have time constraints, want to get back to the beach or fit in an afternoon activity then join us for a relaxing half day away from the Gold Coast on Tamborine Mountain.
Following the original track built by early pioneer’s to transport their produce to the Coast, the tour winds through eucalyptus trees to enter the magnificent rainforests of Tamborine Mountain National Parks. While negotiating this seldom used track we keep a look out for koala and other native wildlife.
Our guides are locals and have extensive knowledge and expertise on the region. Share their favourite places and learn about the Hinterland, it’s unique flora and fauna. View waterfalls cascading into cool mountain streams.
A break for morning tea of Delicious fresh scones, served with jam, cream, tea and coffee. Then a chance to check out Gallery Walk, Tamborine Mountain’s Arts and Crafts precinct with locally made items.
Tamborine is starting to build a reputation for its wineries so this tour would not be complete without a wine tasting. Reds, Whites and ports always please and you may like to purchase a bottle to take home.
Not into wine but enjoy beer then you can skip wine tasting and head to Mount Tamborine’s brewery to taste their extensive range of local beers. (wine tasting and beer tasting at own cost)
Time to stretch the legs and let us take you on a fully guided leisurely bush walk to the mountain’s only spring fed waterfall. Discovering the lush subtropical rainforests where we will tell you about the forest’s unique characteristics, how the Aboriginal people gathered food from the forest floor and the animals and birds that call the area home.
And yes, boomerangs do come back. Haven’t thrown one since you were a kid, or first time to Australia, this is great fun for all ages.
The return journey to the Gold Coast provides sweeping views of the Coast and surrounding mountain ranges. We can even drop you back after the tour at Movie World, Pacific Fair or Paradise Jet Boating on our way back into town to save you on precious holiday time!
