Tamborine Mountain Drive

Tamborine Mountain and Surrounds
Distance: 25 km

Tamborine Mountain offers visitors so many options. Start at the Botanic Gardens on Forsythia Drive before you head along Long Road to Gallery Walk, the busy strip of shops, cafes and restaurants.

Take your time and browse the gifts, the art, the Cuckoo Clock Nest and the jewellery. Take your pick of places to refresh with coffee, food, cake, ice-cream, chocolate, and a visit to Granny Macs Store, or Fudge Heaven. Call into see the Fortitude Brewing Co. and Witches Chase Cheese Co. Beer and cheese, does it get any better?

Stop at the Curtis Falls, explore one of the many walks, Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk or the Glow Worm Caves. Book ahead and spend the night at Cedar Creek Lodges at Thunderbird Park so you can enjoy Thunder egg fossicking, laser skirmish, horse riding and the TreeTop Challenge.

As you drive around look out for the roadside stalls, selling local produce and flowers. Call in for tastings at the Witches Falls Winery on Main Western Rd and the Tamborine Mountain Distillery on Beacon Rd. Follow Main Western Rd south until you reach the Robert Sowter Park, where you can watch hang gliders launch over Canungra and the greater Scenic Rim.

Need a coffee? Stop at the Green Lane Coffee Plantation on Alpine Terrace and take the crop to cup tour.
Top Tip: This is just a taster of what’s on offer at Tamborine Mountain. Book some accommodation and stretch your adventure over a few days.
