Bid To Make Mount Tamborine Part Of The Gold Coast

Mayor welcomes possible boundary change

Bid To Make Mount Tamborine Part Of The Gold Coast

Plenty of us consider Tamborine Mountain to be part of the Gold Coast already, but now local businesses are fighting to officially be included in the region.

The area currently falls under the Scenic Rim Regional Council's umbrella, but News Corp reports the local Chamber of Commerce wants to make the move to the Gold Coast.

It was reportedly in discussions to change council boundaries, in an effort to lower rates and attract more tourists to the area.

Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate backed the move.

"There's only two types of Australians: one that live on the Gold Coast and the other wished they lived here, so let's make it real for Mount Tamborine residents," he said.

The state government would have to make the final decision.
