We did the all day trip with Aaron who said he was new to the company, despite this he was really knowledgable about the area and everything we did on the tour. The off road experience was different to other tours and lunch with Paul was great - definitely a friendly tour and suitable for all ages and abilities.

If you stay on the Goldy for more than a couple of days and DON'T venture into the highlands, you're not seeing the full picture of what the Gold Coast has to offer! Our guide Trent picked us up from our Broadbeach hotel and picked up other guests which was included in the price. Trent was very knowledgable and funny,... More

The scenery is stunning on this half day tour. We saw sub-tropical forest, temperate forest, eucalputus forest and grassland; walked to the beautiful waterfalls at Natural Bridge and Purling Brook, plus stopped at Canyon Lookout and Best of All Lookout with amazing views out over the landscape formed by an enormous volcanic eruption millions of years ago. Chris, our guide... More

excellent knowledgeable guide (Aren if i am not mistaken) beautiful spectacle by the glowworms though the moonlight was a spoilsport, they advertise that glow worm seeing is guaranteed though on full moon days it should not be possible they should look into cxancelling tours on full moon nights or put a disclaimer in their website

Very impressed with how well everyone was treated on the trip into the hinterland to view some beautiful waterfalls. Firstly what impressed me was that although I was not staying at a hotel it was organised for the driver to have the bus as he lived near where I was staying with a cousin. Passengers are picked up from outside... More

This was my 5th trip to the Gold Coast and I hadn't been to Tamborine or Lamington yet. Absolutely loved my day out with Southern Cross. I took my 6 year old daughter with me, and the trip was well catered for young kids as well as adults. Our guide was extremely informative and made us all feel at ease... More

New to Australia and joined the tour for a quick overview. The guide Tim was humurous, kind and knowledgable -- and he brought the sun!The BBQ lunch was great though it might not be enough for those who prefer a bigger meal. Highly recommend for anyone who is new to Australian fauna and flora.

Being from NZ I wasn't expecting too much, but WOW! Our guide was humorous, knowledgable and friendly. He found super-large snails, trapdoor spiders, ring-tail possums, snakes ... and gave us a great experience in the bush. It was followed by a hot drink and cake (supper) at a local cafe. Thoroughly enjoyed this tour!
