What are we about?

Ambience on Tour is a small group tour operator specialising in Wine and Art tours on the Gold Coast Hinterland area focusing on the beautiful Tamborine Mountain.  Day tours include Winery tours, Art tours, Brewery and Distillery tours, Scenic tours and Tailored tours to fit your needs.

 

We are in a UNIQUE  position to take you to meet a range of talented and individual artists in their studios where they reside and work against the rainforest backdrop.

 

Our objective is to ensure you come away from the tour happy, fulfilled and enriched whether it be from being enchanted and enlightened by our artists, or having appreciated award winning Queensland wines, or having visited the intriguing internationally accoladed Distillery or having soaked up the ambience of the rainforest and scenery, or a combination of all of these factors!

 

Ambience on Tour is a strong advocate for supporting local artists as well as local produce.

Our Story

Ambience on Tour was founded in late 2016 by Helen Claase who is both owner and operator. 

 

The art tour concept is inspired by Helen's late mother and the many wonderful and talented people from all walks of life that Helen has had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know on Tamborine Mountain. 

 

Helen has always had a keen interest in wine, art and natural beauty and found an ideal opportunity to showcase some of the finest that Queensland has to offer.

 

Having travelled extensively, Helen has plenty of hands on experience of wine tasting both globally and across the different corners of Australia.  She has followed the changing wine trends throughout the years with fascination - from wine making and bottling to consumer trends.  When last did you use a cork screw to open a bottle of wine?!

 

Coming from an IT Consultancy and Project Manager background Helen is now following a different path veering back to where she was many years ago in the Travel Industry but with a very different focus.
