A March 2004 trip
to Gold Coast by Chrissy1
Quote: A great place to get away from it all, Mt Tambourine is in the hinterland on the Gold Coast.
You can get there by bus from the Gold Coast or hire a car -- it is about 20 minutes to the heart of the mountains. There are plenty of things to do, like go on rainforest walk or visit the local arts and crafts markets.
The cost of accommodation is very reasonable at about $40 a night. Meals and cafes are very inexpensive, so there is more time and money to spend on the markets and local handicrafts.
