What people are saying about Tamborine Mountain

It ended up raining as we through the rainforest, but that seemed to only add to the trip. Thank goodness it was at the end because everyone was soaked, but everyone was happy. The glow worms were definitely the highlight of the trip. Along with the stop for lunch on your own at the cute little town before the glow worms. Highly enjoyed my time.

We had the most incredible experience !! Our tour guides Georgie and Ryan were amazing !!! Highly recommended !! Such a thrill and well worth the money !! Make sure you end the day with a swim at cedar creek falls ! It’s just magical

Awesome experience with Georgie and Tali! We were the only two for the afternoon session so it’s a private tour!! We were a bit scared before doing it but it’s turned out to be so fun! I would totally do that again!

The treetop challenge was the best experience the courses were fun and good for everyone! The staff were so helpful, charismatic, nice, and went over and beyond to make sure we had the best experience.
