Things To Do in Tamborine Mountain
If you’re in the mood for an active girls’ weekend, you’re in for a treat! Choose from popular hiking trails through Tamborine National Park like the Witches Fall Circuit, which includes a scenic lookout. Another option is the Curtis Falls and Lower Creek Circuit, which takes you to the falls via lush rainforest. Finally, the Knoll Walking Track leads you to Cameron Falls. All of these hikes are accessible routes suitable for all fitness levels.
Another way to become one with nature is to walk along the Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk. Over 1.5 kilometres you’ll walk along trails, over steel bridges and along a 40-metre cantilever bridge soaring above the creek and rainforest canopy.
For a more relaxing adventure, head to the Gallery Walk, which boasts over 70 specialty shops on one block. There are plenty of food and drink options, like cafes, restaurants, wineries, candy stores and a homemade fudge shop. These are intermixed with boutiques selling artisan jewellery, vintage and antique wares, and clothing. It also can’t be a Gallery Walk without an art gallery or two, right?
Complete your trip with a visit to a day spa. Getaway Day Spa offers both treatments and relaxing facilities like a hydrotherapy spa, ice bath and infrared sauna. Meanwhile, the day spa at Escarpment Retreat is home to blissful treatment packages. The perfect way to unwind on a Tamborine Mountain getaway.
Where to Eat and Drink in Tamborine Mountain
Over one million people visit Tamborine Mountain annually to enjoy its seven world-class wineries. Witches Fall Winery offers a vast range of red, white and dessert wines. Sample a selection at their affordable wine tasting experience. They also offer an artisanal cider tasting if that’s more your style. Alternatively, pick up fresh local deli produce onsite to make your own charcuterie board and enjoy a picnic on the grounds.
Other great wineries to check out include Mason Wines and Hampton Estate Wines. The latter has a best-selling sparking rosé that you can enjoy while basking in the sunshine on The Green.
Finally, a Mt Tamborine getaway isn’t complete without visiting Tamborine Mountain Distillery. With over 300 awards to its name, it’s Australia’s most awarded distillery and liquor brand this century. Step inside the Elizabethan Tudor-style building and enjoy a tasting flight of your choice. Then take a bottle or two home. We visit three wineries and the distillery on our Tamborine Wine & Dine Tour, which is the perfect girls’ getaway experience.
Now, you’ll probably need some food to accompany your wine. For a Mexican feast, head to El Burro Cantina. Here you can enjoy scrumptious share platters alongside homemade margaritas and sangria. Soak up the sunshine on the outdoor deck at The Polish Place while you sample traditional Polish cuisine. Accompany your meal with a Polish beer or one of nearly 50 Polish vodkas! Finally, if you prefer slow-cooked American barbecue meat, Hickory Slow won’t disappoint.
