Tamborine Mountain

     Queensland, Australia isn't just about beaches. There are very many interesting places to visit and one of them that we enjoyed going to was Tamborine Mountain. It was just a 15-20 minute drive from where we were staying at the Gold Coast. 
     Upon arriving there, we headed for the Tamborine Rainforest Skywalk.

We went here with the whole family! (my in laws ;) )
The Skywalk is the longest canopy walk in South East Queensland, spanning about 300 meters and it is 30 meters above ground! Good thing I'm not really afraid of heights haha ;)

Audrey enjoyed exploring with us :)

I love this daddy and daughter photo :)

This cantilevered Skywalk was an amazing engineering feat - this elevated walkway was 40 meters long and would sway a bit, but it was still secure and stable.

After the Skywalk, we headed over to Main Avenue to grab some lunch

The girls were happy (and sleepy) after all that yummy food
We checked out some wineries along Long Road, Gallery Walk (but since we don't really drink, that's all we did - check, hehe plus take pictures)
We then headed over to Granny Macs - for the best fudge according to our hosts! We got some really yummy fudge flavors like salted caramel, dark chocolate macadamia, milk chocolate, and my childhood favorite - bubble gum flavor! We also got some Violet Crumble ice cream (which was to die for!) and coffee! :) Fun!
