Nestled in the clouds, just an hour south of Brisbane and 45 minutes from the Gold Coast Airport, Tamborine Mountain offers you the most charming mountain top escape all year round.
There’s always a wonderful memory to be made and an exciting adventure to experience on Tamborine Mountain!
In summer, it is where you pick up a picnic basket and meander through ancient rainforests to discover sparkling mountain streams, refreshing waterfalls and cool, uncrowded watering holes. You can stroll amid shafts of golden sunlight and listen to the distant call of the Albert Lyre Bird.
It is also where the day’s end finds you sipping a chilled white wine in the dreamy tranquillity of your mountain top retreat.
In winter the mountain is all about cosy nights in the soft orange glow of a crackling fire. Daytime meanwhile is when you explore the village’s quaint stores, galleries and cafes. Tamborine Mountain is where lunch can take place at an award winning winery, followed by a day spa appointment perhaps or maybe you’d prefer to play a round of golf, attack a high-ropes course or go hot air ballooning! It is all possible.
To delight in everything Tamborine Mountain has to offer does take a few days – thankfully, as you would expect – there are some outstanding accommodation choices here. From traditional B&Bs, motels and charming cottages full of character to a wide selection of enchanting holiday homes that sleep six, eight or more.

Experience Tamborine Mountain is an eclectic collection of like-minded businesses that share a passion for the cool, sub-tropical rainforest paradise that lies near Queensland’s capital, Brisbane and behind the Gold Coast.
Using our specialist local knowledge and connections, we’ve carefully curated a varied menu of activities and experiences that will appeal to visitors’ diversity, tastes and aspirations. And, because one size does not necessarily fit all, we recognise the importance of also crafting tailored experiences for special interest individuals or groups.
The best takeaway from travelling is the stories you’ll have and the abiding memories of simple pleasures, of unplanned serendipitous moments, encounters with locals, and even life-altering learning. We believe in the importance of sharing the little things with our visitors as well as the big ticket moments and look forward to helping you discover them so you’ll have your own stories to tell.

Against this glorious backdrop exists a diverse and colourful cottage industry with numerous local artists and craftspeople, a variety of natural and man-made attractions, award-winning wineries, a vibrant cafe and restaurant scene, soft adventure for the thrill-seekers, festivals, special events and country markets.
These are all supported by a host of accommodation options including generous country homes that suit extended family or corporate groups, warm and welcoming B & Bs and intimate couples’ cottages.
To truly experience and participate in the essence of this special place can be intimate, personal, challenging, exhilarating and even life-affirming. We can show you the main spots to take the pretty pictures, but more importantly, we can help you explore our back streets where you will create a personal connection with our mountain that will continue to touch you long after you leave.
Sometimes the simplest moments during a trip away can provide the greatest memories and experiences – it could be the taste of a new dish, lovingly prepared by a passionate champion of regional produce; an encounter with a knowledgeable, generous winemaker who loves to share a yarn ; laughing with family as you play a board game at a sprawling farmhouse dining table; the sound of birdsong as you light a fire before breakfast; or simply slowing down and being in the moment, exploring the beauty of an ancient rainforest.
Get to know our mountain by connecting to our history, our culture and our people – authentic experiences, uncontrived, sometimes simple, sometimes adrenalin-inducing; something literally for everyone. We have created these experiences for you, so you can now go and live them.
