Tamborine National Park
Located in the Gold Coast Hinterlands, Tamborine National Park is known for its natural beauty, rich biodiversity, and breathtaking views over the Gold Coast and the Pacific Ocean to the east and the Scenic Rim to the west. Queensland’s first national park, Tamborine is a popular destination for locals and visitors alike.
 
The Basics
Half-day and full-day tours combine a visit to Tamborine National Park with other popular activities nearby, such as a glowworm-cave tour, Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk, or shopping for unique arts and crafts at Gallery Walk. Foodies and beer and wine lovers will enjoy trying locally made wine, craft beers, cheese, and chocolate.
 
The main areas to visit in the national park are Cedar Creek, Joalah, the Knoll, MacDonald Park, Palm Grove, and Witches Falls. Popular activities include walking the many well-marked trails, bird-watching, and enjoying the natural wonder of the rain forest, eucalypt forest, lush waterfalls, and numerous cliffs, gorges, and lookouts.

Know Before You Go
