CLOUD 9 is owner-managed and guest-focused. To help maintain our reputation for top-quality holiday accommodation, country hospitality and reliability: ... we encourage guest feedback, ratings and reviews - see below ... we use a standard lens to photograph our views ... we provide accurate floor plans, map location and distances ... we keep our prices the same for holidays ... we are a member of Tamborine Mountain Chamber of Commerce and Industry ... we are not listed for sale ... we recommend the secure Vrbo/Stayz system for bookings, emails and payments, and ... we will never ask you to send money to a non-Australian bank account. You can rest easy at CLOUD 9.


You will be 'floating on air' at CLOUD 9 - perched between the peak of Eagle Heights and the scarp of Tamborine Mountain. CLOUD 9 is ideally located on the north-east edge of the mountain escarpment in a quiet, end-of-court position, bordering a 300 hectare environmental preserve. It's an energetic walk to the popular Botanic Gardens or a 3-minute drive to the lively shops, restaurants and wineries of Gallery Walk. You should visit the nearby Heritage Centre and stroll through the ancient rainforest of Curtis Falls and MacDonald National Park. Or adventure further with the kids to the Glow Worm Caves, Skywalk, Thunderbird Park and the Cedar Creek rock pools.


Tamborine Mountain is an island in the sky, surrounded by protected eucalypt, cloud and rain forests. The Mountain is home to around 7000 people and a sanctuary for the native flora and fauna. Birdwatchers and photographers will appreciate the variety of some rare species. Inquisitive butcherbirds, kookaburras and fairy wrens regularly visit the CLOUD 9 gardens. Then cockatoos and king parrots, bowerbirds and wedgetails may fly overhead. Shy whipbirds can be heard from afar and sooty owls and tawny frogmouth come out after dark. Meanwhile, elusive platypuses swim in the mountain creeks, sleepy koalas live among the gum trees and by night the glow worms glow in the forest caves.


You can use the CLOUD 9 telescope to explore the ocean horizon from Jumpinpin to Main Beach or survey the hinterland valleys of Wongawallan to the wetlands of Coombabah. There are vivid panoramas day and night. Wake to the colours of the rising sun and see rainbows paint the local hillsides. Or watch the full moon rise over the Pacific Ocean and stargaze onto a sparkling night sky. If lucky, you could catch nature's fireworks with a lightning storm at sea, or even that rare phenomenon - the 'Buddha's Halo'. The 4 bedrooms and living rooms all enjoy the uninterrupted ocean, coast and hinterland views with walls of glass upstairs opening to the verandahs. Plus a generous 90 sq mtr of decks to bring those outdoors in.


The 3 suburbs on Tamborine Mountain are Eagle Heights to the north, North Tamborine in the middle and Mount Tamborine away to the south. Eagle Heights is the activity centre of the mountain, hosting the major attractions of Gallery Walk, the Botanic Gardens, the Heritage Museum, Curtis Falls, MacDonald National Park and Palm Grove National Park. And CLOUD 9 directly overlooks the Eagle Heights escarpment with 180 degree views out to the ocean horizon. It's a minute's drive from CLOUD 9 to the Botanic Gardens; 3 minutes to the restaurants, cafes and shops of Gallery Walk on Long Rd; 5 - 15 minutes to the rainforest, waterfalls and nature trails of the 9 National Parks; half an hour to the theme park wonderlands; 35 minutes to the Gold Coast beaches; 55 minutes to the Gold Coast airport; and an hour to downtown Brisbane. Start with our map of the 6 nature walks @ No.32 in the photo gallery, then check the Google Location Map for more detail.


A mountain getaway is a breath of fresh air for body and spirit. And over the years, the embracing beauty of Tamborine Mountain has attracted a community of artists, artisans, authors, academics and adventurers. The poet Judith Wright was a long-term resident and Charles Blackman the painter, a regular visitor. Now you can stay at artful CLOUD 9 and plan your own adventures. First, check out Visit Tamborine Mountain for the many exciting attractions and activities on the mountain. Next, ask us to book you a winery tour, a stay-in dinner with the Tamborine Cooking School or even a balloon ride. Then ... the rest is up to you.


CLOUD 9 is wired for the electronic comforts and furnished throughout with quality appointments. Use the free NBN WiFi, catch a Netflix movie on the 140cm Panasonic smart TV, listen to your iTunes - or one of our CDs - on the Pioneer sound system in the lounge room, or watch TV downstairs on the other flat-screen. You can research the local area, play a board game with the kids and plan your next outing around the big family dining table. Or chat with friends on the plush leather couches while the cooks prepare dinner in the well-equipped kitchen. Then again, you could open the welcome bottle of wine and luxuriate in the 20 jet spa bath. Or grab a slice of the complimentary mountain fudge, check out the mini-library and relax out on the Balinese day bed. And finally you should all get a good night's sleep with CLOUD 9's white linen and her premium pillows, doonas and pillow-top mattresses.


There is all-year dining for 10 out on the grand viewing deck with a quality, undercover BBQ - great for entertaining with family and friends. Look over the sub-tropical eucalypt forest that spills down the mountainside, identify the rare birds and butterflies, and use the scope to spot more reclusive wildlife. Then explore the charming CLOUD 9 garden, with its majestic tallowwood ... pathways and hedge rows ... roses and rainforest ... fruit trees and a herb patch. We dare you to walk the CLOUD 9 Labyrinth, step through the Moongate, sit on the Red Queen's throne and find the key to the Imaginarium. And for our wedding guests, there are several garden 'rooms' to reveal and many colourful props to discover for those special pre-wedding photos.


CLOUD 9 borders the ecologically sensitive headwaters of Tamborine Creek and minimises its environmental footprint with: low impact building materials; natural, dry-stone retaining walls; terraced gardens; organic flower beds, herbs and fruit trees; sensitive cleaning goods; solar and green power; gas hot water, cooking and heating; 2 filtered rainwater tanks; plus onsite waste management. And as a contemporary Queenslander, CLOUD 9 also reduces its carbon footprint with an effective range of passive heating and cooling techniques.


CLOUD 9 is enchanting in all seasons as there are no extremes in temperature on the mountain. Delight in the spring mists as they billow through the valleys below, or welcome the mountain cool in summer with breezes from a faraway ocean. Go leaf peeping for those autumn colours or enjoy the crystal clear weeks of winter as you cozy up around the gas log fire. This happy holiday house is picture perfect for your stylish wedding group accommodation, ultra-comfortable getaway with friends, fun family holiday or rewarding workplace retreat.


CLOUD 9 employs a part-time professional gardener, cleaner and launderer, and provides regular income for several other local service providers. To help maintain CLOUD 9 as a valued member of the Tamborine Mountain community, there are 3 reminders: 1. RESPECT the NEIGHBOURS; 2. NO FUNCTIONS or PARTIES; and sorry, 3. NO PETS.

Choose to stay here, it's wonderful!
Cloud 9 is just magical. Murray made our stay so easy and stress free with excellent communication before our arrival. The house is just lovely and so very comfortable. We loved every little touch, and there were many. The art works were fabulous, the gardens gorgeous, the set up fantastic for our needs. We had our family and two teenage friends for a visit to the Gold Coast for my daughter's birthday, plenty of beds and baths for all and so very well appointed. Location is fantastic, views are incredible from the dawn to the evening. If you are considering a stay here, do it, it is just the most lovely, quiet and perfect home. Thank you Murray and Janelle!
