Tamborine is starting to build a reputation for its wineries so this tour would not be complete without a wine tasting at one of the local wineries. Reds, Whites and and ports always please.

Not into wine but enjoy beer then you can skip wine tasting and head to Mount Tamborine’s brewery to taste their extensive range of local beers (optional)

Time to stretch the legs and let us take you on a fully guided leisurely bush walk to the mountain’s only spring fed waterfall. Discovering the lush subtropical rainforests we will tell you about the forest’s unique characteristics, how the Aboriginal people gathered food from the forest floor and the animals and birds that call the area home.

And yes, boomerangs do come back. Haven’t thrown one since you were a kid, or first time to Australia, this is great fun for all ages.

Frequently Asked Questions

We are staying in Brisbane and want to join your tour. How do we make sure we don’t miss out?

By Car: If you have your own car you can drive down to Movie World and we will meet you there and let you know where to park. Parking is Free of Charge. The drive from Brisbane is around 35 minutes

By Train or Bus: Your best bet is to catch the train to Helensvale Train Station. As soon as you walk off the train our vehicle will be out the front.

What happens if the weather changes and its going to rain?

We carry big umbrellas in all our vehicles so if it does rain we can keep you covered and dry all day. Rainforest’s would not be what they are if it didn’t rain so we may encounter the odd shower but this will not stop us doing the tour. Should we think its going to be a miserable day we will advise the night before tour.

If we join the half day tour and decide to upgrade to the full day tour during the day, Can we?

No Problems, If we have the seats and your having too much fun we can let you know the upgrade fee and you can continue on with us. The half day tour is the beginning of the full day tour so we will let you know what time in the morning you need to tell us.
