Day Trip: Mt Tamborine
Perched along the edge of the Scenic Rim – the remnants of what was once the massive Mount Warning volcano – Tamborine Mountain is a thriving region, encompassing waterfalls, walking trails, antique stores, gift shops, award-winning restaurants, art galleries, sweeping coastal views and a delicate blend of old and new-world charm.
Locally-grown produce including avocados, kiwifruits and macadamia nuts, alongside award-winning cheeses and the mountain’s mainstay – decadent fudge – lend themselves to some seriously good eating. With quality food comes the need for a quality drop, and as Queensland’s fastest growing wine region, Tamborine doesn’t disappoint. The mountain also boasts a fantastic brewery and Australia's most internationally awarded distillery.
