Tamborine Mountain Accommodation
South East Queensland has a Subtropical climate, but Tamborine Mountain's elevation, 580 meters at its highest point, makes it a perpetual 3 or 4 degrees cooler than the surrounding area and often means that the plateau is in cloud. The average rainfall is about 1600 mm, summer being the wettest season.
