Mount Tamborine is set in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range and makes of one of the many World Heritage-listed national parks in located in the area. It is about an hour drive from both Brisbane and the Gold Coast so it makes for a perfect day trip to get away from the cities and into nature.
Your guide will drive you to Mount Tamborine stopping at scenic lookouts which showcase the picturesque countryside and Gold Coast's Surfers Paradise.
After the lookouts you will visit the Skywalk which is a combination of forest floor trails, steel platforms through the highest points of the upper canopy, and a cantilever bridge crossing a creek 30m (100 ft) above. The walk takes approximately 45 minutes at a leisurely pace, with many opportunities to stop at points of interest and information along the walk. The entire walk totals 1.5 kms (1 mi.).
Following your canopy walk we will visit the Cedar Creek Estate for a daytime glow worm experience which typically are only possible to see at night. A purpose-built cave allows you to see thousands of glowing glow worms during a guided tour where you will learn all about these little creatures that can only be found here in Queensland.
You will enjoy a two-course meal at the Cedar Creek Winery in addition to wine tasting.
Finally your guide will take you to one or two last lookouts before dropping you off at your designated location.
