  • Once a volcanic hotspot, which over the years has grown into a lush landscape featuring six National Parks, the Scenic Rim region and adjoining Hinterland is a treasure trove of unique plants, animals and distinctive vegetation types.

    The Rainforest and Beyond Experience has been created to uncover all the gems of the Great South East - from World Heritage Listed Rainforests, including the region’s biggest single drop waterfall; to scenic adventures to hear more about the fertile region. The Scenic Rim is perfect for Pasture to Plate farming practices, and we discover some of the best, covering a cross section of camel and cattle dairies.

    The experience also provides the opportunity to trek deep into Tamborine National Park with Australia’s only night time 4WD Safari of Glow Worms.

    So why wait?! Book now and lose yourself in the shade of white-washed flooded gums and rainforest gullies thick with piccabeen palms on a Rainforest and Beyond Experience.

    Minimum Numbers:
    All experiences need a minimum number of participants to operate at the price listed. The minimum number for the Rainforest and Beyond Experience is 8 participants, but it’s a very personal experience with a maximum of 15.

    The national park is home to seasonal lagoons surrounded by piccabeen palm groves. During the wet season, rain fills the lagoons with water, and they spring to life with a variety of insect and frog species. We will journey to Witches Falls waterfall and the waterfall viewing platform. Our return walk will take approximately 1 hour to complete, 3.6km return.

    Framed with tree ferns, Japanese windflowers and many colours of iris reflecting in the water, the lake is a haven for water birds, fish, frogs and is crossed by the beautiful old stone bridge which was built many years ago. You will have time to wander and discover the gardens at your leisure before we venture to the next location.

Who We Are

Logo Experience Tamborine Mountain

What is Experience Tamborine Mountain all about?

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.

Tamborine Mountain – what to do and where to stay?

Mountain destinations translate to achingly beautiful scenery and views, crisp, clean air, a plethora of local wildlife and pristine forest, and Tamborine Mountain is no exception. 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.

What can Experience Tamborine Mountain offer you?

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.

Explore our ‘Experience’ packages

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.
