Venture inland from the pristine beaches of the Gold Coast, and discover the green heart of Queensland on a rollicking guided tour of Tamborine National Park. Join a chatty Aussie guide and cruise along rugged hillsides overlooking endless sweeps of beautiful nature. Watch a waterfall crashing through tropical rainforest and keep an eye out for some very cute marsupials eating their way along the treetops!

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.

Hop off and trek through the subtropical rainforest, while your guide gives you a rundown of all the local critters you might encounter. Feel the cool spray of Curtis Falls as it cascades down, and take a boomerang lesson from a seasoned pro — no one will mess with you after this!

Along the way, you'll also stop for photos at various lookouts, as well as refreshment breaks, and a chance to explore local craft shops at the Gallery Walk. With over 70 brightly coloured shops selling artistic hand-crafted goods and yummy local treats, it's a real gem not to be missed.

Insider tip

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.
