North Tamborine is a neighbourhood of Tamborine Mountain in South East Queensland, Australia.[1]

History[edit]

Many early settlers grew maize and grazed dairy cattle.[2] The first guesthouse on the mountain was open in 1889.[2]

A tourist road to the mountain was completed in 1924.[2] The road brought visitors to the area and the North Tamborine village became the centre for social and business activities. North Tamborine Post Office opened by 1922.[3]

A section of Tamborine National Park known as The Knoll protects forests found in the north of the suburb.

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