The Castle On Tamborine, Gold Coast Hinterland

Joanna Hall

The Gold Coast’s stunning hinterland isn’t short of options when it comes to romantic escapes and getaways, however, The Castle On Tamborine is like nothing you’ll have ever experienced before. 

  • Location: It's part of Lisson Grove luxury themed cottages in North Tamborine, in the Gold Coast Hinterland.
  • Accommodation:  There are two wings, the Ross Wing and Carmichael Wing, which are both lavish one-bedroom two-level havens for couples.
  • Dining options: There isn’t a restaurant at Lisson Grove, but both wings are equipped with gourmet kitchens, and all accommodation packages include a hamper filled with delicious breakfast supplies, freshly squeezed orange juice and hot baked bread delivered to your door each morning. You can also customise your stay to have champagne and chocolates on arrival, and a gourmet breakfast and-or dinner delivered at a time of your choice.
  • What else is there: There is a day spa with private access from The Castle, with a menu of treatments from facials to hot stone massage, and facilities including a steam room, sauna and hydro spa custom built for couples.
  • What’s nearby: A golf course, a lineup of award-winning wineries, the famous Tamborine Mountain Distillery, Witches Chase Cheese Factory, bush walks, the Tamborine Forest Rainforest Skywalk, Glow Worm Caves, cafes and restaurants.
  • Why go: It’s the ultimate lovers’ palace where you can escape from it all and live like royalty - if only for a few days.

The Space

The Castle is part of the family-owned Lisson Grove, a collection of luxury themed cottages for couples located high on the edge of Mount Tamborine opposite Witches Falls. On arrival The Castle the first thing you see - a medieval styled facade complete with drawbridges, separated by the day spa - but don’t be fooled by appearances. What lies behind the heavy wooden front doors is as stylish and modern-day romantic as it comes. The Castle has it all besides a convenient and idyllic location a world away from the Gold Coast’s famous beaches, including lovely gardens filled with birds in the morning, and plenty of fresh air and quiet. 

Where We Stayed

Our home for the night was the Ross Wing, and upon entering you have two choices; turn right to head into the expansive living and kitchen area, or head up stairs to the bedroom and bathroom. The living area is open plan complete with a large kitchen complete with a dining table and two chairs, a large fridge, microwave, a stove top, a dishwasher, and a coffee machine. From there you walk down into the comfy sunken lounge, which has a log fire for cooler nights, plush seating, and is overseen by an elaborate chandelier. At the flick of a switch, this space is transformed into a private cinema with hidden projector, blue ray DVD and screen surround sound (you can grab DVDs from reception). Off to the right via folding doors is a generous indoor plunge pool heated to 32C with an atmospheric backlit waterfall. And from there you can access your own private meditation courtyard for two. The decor overall is a lovely use of black and white, with highly polished tiles, plush cushions, and elegant crested wallpaper. Heading up to the upper level of the wing, you arrive into a large bedroom with a king sized Versace-styled bed complete with an ornate headboard and drapes (the other wing has a four-poster bed), and a roof terrace with two sun beds. The adjoining bathroom has a double shower and gold plated fittings, but the centre piece is a huge oval spa bath which you step up to, and which designed for two. Loves 

  • The option to self-cater, or be spoiled with breakfast and dinner delivered.

Insider Tips  

  • Although it’s hard to drag yourself away from the facilities at The Castle, get out and enjoy some of the local bush walks.
  • If you want to self cater for dinner or lunch, there is an IGA supermarket in North Tamborine, and plenty of wineries with cellar doors to stock up from.
