Tamborine Mountain is part of the Scenic Rim. It has a unique climate and peculair ecosystem which supports much diversity of fauna and flora.

It boasts a tropical hinterland that must be experienced to be believed.

Everywhere you turn you will see mountains.

Australia's most accessible World Heritage-listed rainforests are spread throughout the 8 National Parks of the Scenic Rim. Witches Falls is the oldest National park in Qld 1908. The natural landscape is stunning

A variety of beautiful birds forage on the plant life and glo worms, luxurious fungi and other nocturnal creatures benefit from the minimum street lighting on the Mountain.

There is much to do and see:

The Tamborine Rainforest Sky Walk puts you in the canopy with the wildlife

.The Sky Walk & the Glow Worm Caves are the 2 most popular sites on the Mountain.

The National Parks provide many days of exploration and enjoyment for bush walkers and bird watchers.

Off the Mountain, 30 minutes drive away, conveniently located on the M1 motorway, are 2 Fun Parks.

Wet & Wild. The new corkscrew water slide sends riders on rafts through an enclosed tube at speeds of up to 30 kmph. It is claimed to be the highest banking tubes in the world.

Dreamworld, also located on the M1 motorway is home to the Sumatran Tigers. they star in this headline act in 30 hectare fun park. Given their dwindling numbers, this is a memorable experience.

If you are a daredevil, you can hitch a ride with a local hang glider, or you can be an onlooker. Meander down Gallery Walk, a run of intriguing shops, restaurants, art galleries.

If food and wine are more to your taste, visit the Cheese Factory, or The Belgian Chocolate Shop, or the boutique breweries and distilleries

There are locally grown organic veggies, native flowers or a coffee on offer in the local area.

Latest News:

The Shed near the golf course is open Friday and Sunday for fresh grown Mountain produce. they are now stocking Tamborine Mountain locally produced eggs.

Stay for 2 days and you will feel like you have been on holiday for a week. A truly blissful experience.

One guest has decided to write a book on site given the tranquility of the location.

"What a fantastic time we have had here @ the Retreat.. To wake up and have a breathtaking view towards the Coast, across the lush green mountains while sipping your cuppa- no cares or worries- the world can pass vy quietly- I didn't notice. the nights are great- peaceful and dark. for a person who works 7 days/ week, I have been totally relaxed- done nothing except enjoy my " Retreat", and all that Tamborine can offer."
