The 4 Best Places to Stay on Tamborine Mountain

A quick 45-minute trip from Goldie and only one hour from Brisbane, Tamborine Mountain is close enough for a leisurely day trip.  

But with so much good stuff to savour in the Scenic Rim, why limit your hiking and wine-tasting escapades to one day?

A solid selection of cosy lodgings lies peppered around the region, from extravagant wineries to chic eco-resorts. We’ve rounded down the top four options into one handy list.

Hampton Estate

One of our favourite Tamborine vineyards, the viniculture gurus at Hampton do a killer Sparkling Rose. And once you’ve had your fill of the bubbly stuff, it’s got a brilliant little boutique to lay your wine-weary head.

The gorgeous whitewashed abode is home to eight elegant studio suites. Each comes complete with sparkling modern ensuites, a handy kitchenette, and a private balcony with sweeping views of their luscious lawns. Upgrade to the Deluxe Suite to snag an ultra-luxe spa.   

And yes. You will get a complimentary bottle of Hampton wine on arrival.

Escarpment Retreat

Set on four acres of lush botanical gardens, this award-winning rainforest sanctuary can undeniably boast some of the most stunning views on Tamborine Mountain.

Perched on a cliff on the southern side of the mountain, you’re going to want to book the aptly named Edge House. It is a fully contained three bedroom cabin featuring an outside deck with a log fireplace and views 80km through the rainforest all the way to the coast. It is truly breathtaking.

Songbirds Rainforest Retreat

Nestled amid 51 acres of sopping wet rainforest, this tranquil five-star eco-resort is the ideal spot to crush those inner-city blues. Wake up to the soothing sound of parakeets chirping by your luxury villa. Next, nibble away on a gourmet breakfast at the excellent in-house restaurant.  

All six well-appointed villas boast serene South East Asian décor, a bubbling tub with a rainforest view, and private balconies. Keen to stretch the legs? Hiking trails meander through the lush property.

Pethers Rainforest Retreat

Romantic getaways don’t get much more amorous than a weekend at Pethers. This heavenly rainforest retreat has been specially designed with loved-up couples in mind. No noisy kids or big, boisterous groups allowed.

Each of its ten intimate treehouse-style villas features a private spa for two and a five-metre high floor-to-ceiling window for a gorgeous rainforest view. Polished hardwood floors, colossal plush rugs, and a cosy living and dining space amp up the luxe factor a notch. 

Still sound a tad too stressful? Book yourself in for a hot lava stone massage.
