What people are saying about Tamborine Mountain

Loved that the tour picks up from your hotel and drops back off. You'll need to have an early dinner as they pick up around 5:30-6:00pm and then drop you back around 10pm. Seems like a lot of time but the experience went super fast! Very knowledgeable tour guide gave us heaps of fun facts and jokes along the way. About a 45 minute drive from city center into the rainforest.

This was an amazing tour and our tour guide - Daf was very knowledgeable and witty. He took us on a small trek which was very nice. He has great knowledge of the local plants in the rainforest. The glow worms - were the highlight of the tour and it was a magnificent sight when we saw 100s of them glowing. Highly recommend these guys when you are up in Gold Coast!

Beautiful forest and amazing place to spend your evening in middle of beautiful sub-tropical rain forest. If you love the wild, you will live it here. I come from a country with dense rain forest, so for people travelling from Africa or India, this will be a simple experience

I wonderful day ,weather was brilliant,our driver Paul was just great, he took our photos and explained where we were and where we were going. I would recommend this trip to everyone…but mainly for wine lovers.

Lovely day out. Right number of wineries. Guide was spectacular - thanks Matt!
