How to Experience the Gallery Walk in the Gold Coast

Known as the tourist strip on Tamborine Mountain, there are over 60 shops to wander into during your day adventure!

Mount Tamborine sits at the heart of Australia’s Gold Coast Hinterland. Here, pristine beaches sprawl inwards to the hinterland, where mountain ranges carve exquisite silhouettes against the horizon.

One of the most popular attractions in the Gold Coast is the much-visited Gallery Walk. This stretch of the area is home to more than 60 different arts, crafts, and curiosity shops that sell everything from handmade homeware items to bespoke pieces of artwork.

As well as a series of creative boutiques, Gallery Walk also has a number of family-run restaurants serving both local and international cuisine, and a handful of cosy cafes that are perfect for grabbing a coffee in and watching the world go by.

This shopping precinct is a must-visit if you want to pick up a unique something to take home with you. Set against a backdrop of lush rainforest, it also offers incredible views out across the surrounding scenery and is a great place to start exploring everything Mount Tamborine has to offer.

Gallery Walk is defined by a long road that carves through the picturesque foliage of the mountain and boasts a huge collection of art, antiques, jewellery, and clothing, making it a great place to get a souvenir or two.
