Long a favourite for romance and weddings with cosy hideaways, day spas and cabins, Tamborine will work its magic.
Only 30 minutes from central Gold Coast beaches, Tamborine National Park is Queensland’s first national park reserve.
Unusual cycads which are relics of plants from 150 million years ago grow on the mountain.
The rare Albert’s lyrebird, the world’s largest skink and birdwing butterflies are some of the natives you could meet on a Tamborine visit.
Picnic at The Knoll and Witches Falls, tasting some of the award winning cheeses from Witches Chase, see cycads at Zamia Grove or check out the landscape on a lookout.
Nature is only part of Tamborine’s charm. Gallery Walk - a row of stores - offers plenty of gift ideas, craft and art Markets are a plenty with fresh produce and other regular events. Late September view Springtime on the Market, a floral festival with a rainbow of colours.
Better yet, combine them all with a stay at Songbirds in your very own luxury cottage.
Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary on the Gold Coast is world renowned for its feeding of huge flocks of free-flying wild Rainbow Lorikeets, which come to the Sanctuary to feast daily.
The multitude of events, shows and attractions include dingo encounters, free flight bird shows and even crocodile feeding of the park's massive saltwater crocodile. Also, the Sanctuary's recognized as a quality research and conservation facility.
