Ive read a few reviews stating that this was short but in my view its just a perfect time slot. Any longer and it would be just wasted. For those who believe it should be longer - just sit outside and take in the surroundings. Yes it is educational which is great for a parent who wants to making learning... More

Don't get me wrong for what we saw it was very informative & interesting, just thought there would be more. The video lasts about 10mins followed by the time in the cave with the glums, making the overall time about half an hour. I wouldn't return in a hurry, but glad we went.

I am not a nature person in the slightest. Personally I wouldn't do this again. I don't ever want people to think that I want to take away from peoples business. This is my opinion and I want all to do as they see fit. BTW i have very few bad reviews as I am thankfully a very happy person... More

Educational, fun but short and sweet. Lasts for about 40mins. Since it's man made, I was wondering if all the glows were just little lights to make it more interesting.

The tour is ok and lasts for about 30 mins. Cost was $36 for 2 adults and 2 students, so getting a little up there. Not in a hurry to go again, but I would say it's a must do whilst up there. Interesting talk about glow worms though

Another semi expensive activity in the mountains - probably best done on a overcast day when you need to leave the beach / pool The kids did enjoy this but we went in the peak time and there was a little wait - not sure if you can book a time or not but we paid and then went for... More

We live on the Gold Coast and actually took the time to visit here today. Definitely worth a visit. If you haven't seen a glow worm you should they are truely amazing. The guides are very informative and entertaining half hour tour for $12 well worth it.

Local species in a man made habitat. Rob our guide was great; informative, personable and patient. The tunnel of approximately 8000 glow worms at present (hoping to increase to 10,000 in future) is stunningly beautiful. Considering glow worms are only found in Australia and NZ this is a rare treat for someone from the U.K. as I am. The highlight... More

Visited with my wife whilst visiting the Scenic Rim. Amazing spot and really interesting to see. Tour guides are fantastic with each tour going for 30min which is plenty of time. Having already seen glow worms in New Zealand, I was still very impressed. A must do if you are in the area.
