ABOUT US

HISTORY

 

QCCC started on the Gold Coast’s Tamborine Mountain in 1971, one of the many partners with the neighbouring Keswick Convention Centre. Over the years QCCC has developed its own site, and assumed responsibility for neighbouring properties to create one of Queensland’s premiere conference and camping facilities,  hosting hundreds of school, church, and community groups that come through its venues today.  Extensively renovated over the past decade, QCCC Tamborine offers modern accommodation, world-class catering and an extremely comfortable, versatile venue.  If you want Outdoor Education on the Gold Coast, QCCC Tamborine is a great option.

LOCATION

 

Located only 30kms from the Gold Coast and 70kms from Brisbane, QCCC Tamborine is an ideal place to breathe in fresh mountain air, take in breathtaking views, and enjoy the laid back country charm. The site has one of the best views available in Queensland with a sweeping 360 degree vista of Brisbane, Moreton Bay and the Scenic Rim Hinterland.  With access to 50 acres of land QCCC’s partnership with Vertec Adventure provides more than twenty Outdoor Education activities, making it a sought-after destination for school and youth camps in Queensland.  QCCC Tamborine’s also specialises in Theme Park camps at nearby attractions on the Gold Coast.

MENUS

Groups that have booked exclusive use of a centre are able to customize their own menu from a variety of selections such as pizza, roast beef, lasagne, sticky date pudding, and scones to name a few. The menu selection forms are made available to group leaders approximately one month prior to camp.

 

SHARED SITE

Groups that have booked only part of a site – either WEC Centre, CMS Centre, or Tamborine Lodge- and are sharing site with another group will NOT be able to choose their menu. Additionally all standard meal times must be adhered to.
