Should you go there, may I recommend the Knoll N P (now referred to by P&W
Service as the Knoll section of the Tamborine Mountain N P).  Within the
first half kilometre of the excellent walking track you pass through open
Eucalypt forest, wet sclerophyll and into rainforest.

In case you have occasion to talk to local residents, beware of the
confusing place names situation:

    The whole mini-plateau is "Tamborine Mountain"

    "Mt Tamborine" is the village at the southern end of "the Mountain".

    "North Tamborine" is the village in the north-western part.

    "Tamborine" is a village in the valley some 5 km NW from the Mountain.

    "Eagle Heights" is the village in the north-eastern part of the

The most direct route from the Gold Coast brings you first to Eagle Heights,
and if time is critical, Palm Grove N P is also a good birding location.
