QCCC started on the Gold Coast’s Tamborine Mountain in 1971, one of the many partners with the neighbouring Mount Tamborine Convention Centre. Over the years QCCC has developed its own site, and assumed responsibility for neighbouring properties to create one of Queensland’s premiere retreat and school camp facilities in the Gold Coast Hinterland. 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, QCCC Tamborine is a great option for your next Gold Coast school camp or event.
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.
