Tamborine Mountain is inland from the Gold Coast, about 21 miles (34km) northwest of Nerang and about 40 miles (62km) from Brisbane. It is a popular scenic drive destination, as the area includes seven national parks featuring a variety of sub-tropical rainforest. Mount Tamborine itself rises 1,837ft (560m) above sea level. The main Tamborine National Park covers a large section of the mountain offering walking trails through abundant rainforest and past waterfalls, with excellent picnic facilities. There are numerous art and craft galleries in the area, several restaurants and two wineries.
