Getting from Coolangatta Airport to Mt Tamborine via taxi can be quite expensive. I would budget around $180 to get to the Escarpment and maybe $200 to get to other properties on our mountain
Less expensive is a personalised pickup of $165 for two people provided by Tamborine Mountain Tours which is cheaper than a taxi. They also charge the same price from Brisbane Airport
However, by far the best plan is to catch a regular bus from the Coolangatta Airport to Surfers Paradise, enjoy the day on the Gold Coast exploring the tourist razzle dazzle and then catch the local daily Tamborine Mountain Tours bus later in the day that will make it’s journey up to your Mt Tamborine accommodation from the Gold Coast
Here are the times:
- The 702 bus runs every 15 minutes from the Coolangatta Airport and takes about 30 mins to get to Surfers Paradise
- The Tamborine Mountain Tours bus departs from the Surfers Paradise Transit Centre to Mt Tamborine daily at both 15.00 and 17.00 and will deliver you to our reception at around 16:40 or 18:00 for the grand cost of $20 p.p.
From Brisbane Airport, you can catch a train to Helensvale Train Station and Tamborine Mountain Tours will pick you up on the same daily afternoon service en route from the Surfers Paradise Transit Centre. ETA for collection from Helensvale is at 16:05 and 17:30
