Abut the region Tamborine Mountain is part of Australia's famous Gold Coast ,yet separate from it in many ways. Tamborine Mountain is located directly west of of Surfer's Paradise in the area called the 'Scenic Rim'. The stunning increase in demand for property on' the Mountain' has occurred in part because Queensland prices have traditionally lagged behind those in other state capitals.

It stands as the centrepiece of the Gold Coast Hinterland with a subtropical climate, good rainfall, deep volcanic soils; the ideal conditions for the local flora and fauna to thrive. The residents of' the Mountain' do not have access to town water and all the limitations associated with restricted usage .Residents use tank water for household purposes and sub- surface water for watering,car-washing and swimming pool filling is readily available.
