Fascinating creatures and it was very educational. However the tour is not very long and we were rushed out because a tour group behind us was early for their slot.

A very interesting visit to the Glow Worm Caves lasting about 30 minutes. The guide was very knowledgable and provided a lot of information during the visit. Definitely a visit not to be missed!

We visited this last week. Was okay smaller then the one in NZ. With due respect, it takes great time and effort to maintain. To staff and owners great job. I guess as a first time visitor would be great.

Went to this tour as I've never seen glow worms before. This purpose built cave was made to help revive the glow work population in Australia. The interior is very dark and cool, with the enthusiastic guide explaining and showing us in detail. An educational...More

We stumbled upon this place while looking for an activity from Brisabne. I wasn't expecting it to be a man made "cave" however really impressed with the effort to re populate the species. I have seen glow worms in the Natural Bridge and Wytomo and...More
