The Area: Mount Tamborine, QLD
A lush landscape positioned a short drive from bustling Brisbane and the glittering Gold Coast, Mount Tamborine is covered in rainforest and offers panoramic views across the mountains all the way to the coast. Scattered with cascading waterfalls and enchanting glow worm caves, a slice of civilisation is welcomed in the form of organised wine tours, boutique galleries, shops, restaurants and cafes.
Have breaths taken away with structured walks through the nine national parks in the area, or enjoy a round on one of the scenic golf courses. Journey into the centre of the earth with a mystical tour of the glow worm caves, or relish a thrilling adventure way up in the canopy on the Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk.
Pause to explore the many local art galleries, markets, pubs and cafes, before relaxing and lunching at one of the numerous picnic spots across the mountain. Vino aficionados taste local drops at one of several nearby wineries, like Heritage Wines or Witches Falls Winery, finishing off with a gourmet meal matched to a glass of red or white.
