Scenic Rim Accommodation
Good old fashioned country hospitality is something we do well in the Scenic Rim. Look for quaint farm-houses with old-fashioned cooked breakfasts or a charming Mt Tamborine Federation Residence like Amore B&B. There is a lot to see and do when you choose Scenic Rim Accommodation for your next short break. Yes it is a great place to stay.
The emergence of Tamborine Mountain as a tourism destination had its genesis in the development of traditional B&B’s and Guesthouses. Tourists from Brisbane and the surrounds seeking to unwind in a restful and relaxing atmosphere flocked to the B&B’s in the area.
Nothing has changed. Amore B&B continues the tradition. Experience great hospitality, extensive local knowledge of all that Mt. Tamborine and the surrounds has to offer, welcoming, inviting and with personal attention, we are always ready to show you a brilliant time. The perfect Central Location in a natural setting.

Scenic Rim Accommodation is situated in a group of forested mountain ranges of the Great Dividing Range straddling the border between south-eastern Queensland and north-eastern New South Wales, Australia.
The mountainous landscape forms a quarter circle ridge positioned roughly from south of Toowoomba around to Springbrook. Tamborine Mountain, Lever’s Plateau and the Lamington Plateau are all part of the rim formation. The Scenic Rim is considered part of the Gold Coast hinterland. Parts of the region are well developed, crossed by highways with facilities for tourists like Cunninghams Gap, others are privately owned agricultural properties and rural villages such as Beechmont and Tamborine Mountain. Much of the rest is protected in national parks and nature reserves which you can explore when you choose one of the Scenic Rim Accommodation options for your stay.
The geology and landscape of the Scenic Rim is largely volcanic in origin, deriving from the prehistoric Tweed Volcano, including the Mount Warning shield volcano, and the Focal Peak and Main Range volcanic rocks. Some areas of sedimentary origin include parts of Mount Barney and eastern Lamington national parks. The deeply weathered, mainly basaltic, soils support rainforest and vine thicket ecosystems, as well as rare eucalypt and grassland communities. The area has a subtropical climate with (at the lowest altitudes) average minimum winter temperatures of 6°C, average maximum summer temperatures of 29°C, and average annual rainfall of 1555 mm.
Areas protected in national parks and other conservation reserves include the Border Ranges National Park, Glen Rock Regional Park, Koreelah National Park, Lamington National Park, Limpinwood Nature Reserve, Main Range National Park, Mebbin National Park, Moogerah Peaks National Park, Mount Barney National Park, Mount Warning National Park, Numinbah Nature Reserve and Springbrook National Park. Parts of the Scenic Rim are listed as a World Heritage site, and some are designated Wilderness Areas. Great areas to experience when you choose one of the Scenic Rim Accommodation options for your stay.
