Mount Tamborine is a town (and former suburb) on Tamborine Mountain in South East Queensland, Australia.[2]


Mount Tambourine Post Office opened by March 1924 (a receiving office had been open from 1881, originally known as Tambourine Mountain), was renamed Mount Tamborine in 1926 and closed in 1977.[3]

Formerly a suburb in its own right, in 1997, Mount Tamborine was merged with other former suburbs North Tamborine and Eagle Heights to create the larger locality of Tamborine Mountain.[4]
