Aaronlee Retreat at Tamborine Mountain in the Gold Coast Hinterland is the perfect place to stay for a short mid-week getaway. Located 2 and a half hours drive from Bribie, guests will feel like they are in another world. Temperatures on the mountain are generally 5 – 10 degrees cooler than Brisbane and Aaronlee’s country rural charm will delight all who visit.
From its perch at the very top and edge of the mountain, Aaronlee Retreat offers a variety of accommodation, yet reasonably priced and regularly offering discounted Senior Special packages. The Federation homestead is a 10-minute drive from town and is set amongst acres of lawns and pretty flowering garden beds. All rooms have fireplaces, ceiling fans, kitchenette, outdoor seating and are fully self-contained, (some with spa baths).
Guests enjoy the selection of board games, books and magazines on offer. The Retreat has BBQ facilities, a swimming pool and there are so many places to sit and relax whilst breathing in the pure mountain air. The views from the lawns are uninterrupted and simply breathtaking.
During a stay at Aaronlee, guests enjoy the very popular Half or Full Day Wineries (and local sites) Tours which depart from Aaronlee at 9.45 am. The Full-Day Wineries Tour includes a delicious sit-down restaurant luncheon at a local winery.
Tamborine Mountain offers beautiful bush walks, lookouts and waterfalls. Visit the rainforests, swim in rock pools, shop the famous Gallery Walk, indulge in a high tea, be pampered with an Aaronlee in house massage and spa treatment, take a stroll through the Botanical Gardens, play a game of golf or lawn bowls, visit the orchid farm, galleries, nurseries, cheese factory, take a short day trip to the Gold Coast or explore the Scenic Rim region. There are many interesting and fun attractions. Details and maps are provided by your host when you check-in.
Aaronlee is home to Bonnie and Honey, two Shetland ponies, an abundance of birdlife including the endangered Albert’s Lyrebirds and a flock of Tawny Frogmouth birds. This peaceful and relaxing Retreat is available for Group bookings too including friend getaways, milestone birthday celebrations, elopements, anniversaries, weddings and family reunions.
