Just a 40-minute drive from the white sandy beaches and busy skyline of the Gold Coast, Mount Tamborine and its gorgeous national park offer a calm slice of laid back life — Aussie style! Grab a ticket and book your place on this awesome day-trip, and stretch your legs in the breathtaking Queensland bush.
Enjoy a delicious morning tea, before hopping in a comfy coach and zipping off across the countryside on a genuine adventure. Take in the beautiful natural sights, and keep an eye out for wildlife. If you're lucky, you might even see some kangaroo families bouncing around in the distance.

If you hear strange noises as you trek through Tamborine National Park, don't be too alarmed. The area is home to the mysterious lyrebird. This bird is capable of imitating pretty much any sound you can imagine, from chainsaws to car alarms, camera shutters, and more! It's quite an amazing thing to witness.
