Mount Tamborine offers the idyllic serenity of a rainforest
village, only 35kms from the heart of Surfers Paradise and a
one hour drive from Brisbane city.
Nestled amongst the national parks and nature reserves that
make up the Gold Coast hinterland, this suburb is renowned
for its panoramic views across the coast and its wide
assortment of craft and antique stores, tearooms, markets,
galleries and cafes.
Mount Tamborine (including the villages of North Tamborine,
Eagle Heights, Tamborine Village and Canungra) boasts
fertile soil and an excellent climate, which make it the
ideal location for a number of successful wineries and means
that a variety of local fresh produce is regularly on offer.
The charm of the Mountain village, together with the wide variety of visitor accommodation, makes Mount Tamborine the perfect tranquil retreat for many local and interstate tourists. It is not uncommon for weekend visitors, escaping the bustle of city life, to fall in love with Mount Tamborine and decide to invest in property. Retirees are typically attracted to the serenity of the environment and the range of peaceful leisure activities, such as gardening and bird watching, which the area is renowned for. Close proximity to both Brisbane and the Gold Coast make Mount Tamborine ideal for working professionals who happily accept a regular commute in order to secure the relaxed lifestyle and quite surrounds of this plateau location.
Younger families are well catered for with both private and public schools in the area, as well as kindergarten, preschool and day care facilities. The abundance of national parks and nature reserves in the area offer a range of walking tracks, picnic spots and picturesque lookouts. As such, Mount Tamborine is a popular location for people who enjoy the outdoors. Rapid population growth throughout Southeast Queensland and the resultant expansion of infrastructure have threatened the sanctuary of quiet communities like Mount Tamborine but measures have been taken to avoid this. Mount Tamborine forms part of the Beaudesert Shire, which has imposed restrictions on further subdivision in the area. As a result, the availability of vacant land in the area has significantly decreased and prices have risen accordingly in recent years.
Housing choices are diverse and buyers will find it relatively easy to find a home to suit their tastes and budget. Mount Tamborine offers a wonderful selection of neat and tidy cottages. Some of these homes are brick and tile, others are built of Western Red Cedar or Hardiplank. Due to the suburb's unique location on an escarpment, even some of the budget priced homes enjoy stunning views to the Coast or over rainforest settings
