Up with the Birds

Going back to my dandy adventures in the Gold Coast once more, we traveled to Mt Tamborine to see what the brochures were on about.  Apparently it is a must-see tourist spot that offers exceptional views and activities amongst other things, and considering I had never been after all these years, I was curious to see what all the fuss is about.

A pie and a half later, we had strolled down the busy streets filled with the usual weekenders and tourists, poured over beautiful vintage brooches and had bought $30 worth of mouth-watering fudge. Needless to say things were going excellently, and then we were offered the opportunity to crash a tour and explore a rainforest which completely enhanced our thrilling Mt Tamborine adventure. We were given a guided tour by a friendly and informative man who had been running these tours for years, and boy did he have a lot to say.  There were some particularly intriguing facts he explained about the history and the local flora, and the rainforest itself was absolutely magnificent.

Luckily the clouds remained non-threatening which meant that I could take out my camera and go into pro-photographer mode which really consisted of taking numerous snaps of the beauty around me and different angles.

Looking up at the Trees

Ain’t it pretty?
Yep, there were spiders in there.

Watcha doing there, Turkey?
It’s difficult to see, but there’s the coastline of Gold Coast in the background.

…And on the car ride home, we devoured most of the fudge.

  1. So many beautiful opportunities for photos there 🙂 I love going for drives up the mountain, walking down to the natural arch in Springbrook and watching sunsets over the other side of the mountain xoxo
