Green fields after the rain

The Green Behind the Gold

After all the rain we have received there has been no better time to see the Gold Coast hinterland “the green behind the gold”. Mount Tamborine and its’ surrounding area includes seven national parks. The many national parks feature subtropical flora, waterfalls, wildlife, especially birds, picnic facilities and many bushwalks. Isn’t it time you got to see your backyard?

Hot in the City?

Hot in the city tonight? It’s not about to cool down anytime soon according to the latest climate change reports! Luckily, Mount Tamborine towers 560 meters above the hinterland and ensures that the summers on the mountain are refreshingly cool, you may even get some light frosts in the winter. To escape the heat this summer, take a short drive (only 62km from Brisbane) and refresh!
