  • we are very disappointed of the cave and the "tour", which is nothing more as a video show & a quick visit in a small artificial cave. 14 dollar is just not worth it - go in a pub instead and have two...  more »

  • Staff is amazing. The glow worms are very interesting and unique. I have to say I had different expectations but it turns out that we had a pleasant and unique experience. I would have preferred more time and more things to do and see, but it was inexpensive and again, a good experience.
  • Great day trip for the family if you are wanting to get out of the busy city and drive to the beautiful Tamborine mountains. Price of tour is cheap lasting around 30 minutes. Dont expect the cave to be massive though because it isn't, however when you do enter the glow worm cave, it is truly beautiful. Tour guide was very funny and informative. There was also a free entry to the frog sanctuary which was a bonus. Overall a nice and inexpensive experience.
  • It's as good as it can be. Was given plenty of time to look and admire, and learn about the small eco system inside the man made cave . Also a beautiful nature walk to and from the cave. At the entrance there is a cafe and restaurant that looks out to a pond with water dragons sun bathing. The amphibians hut is also worth a look on the path to the caves, and might be lucky to see a giant huntsman in the corner watching.
  • Was a wet and rainy day when we visited. Glow worms were an interesting sight. Only guided tours available, informative guides. I do wish that we were able to browse at our own pace though.
  • Really awesome. Great presentation. Cave and worms are so beautiful. Bonus of being on vinyard. Couldn't find any pics if cave for sale. Would have been perfect if you could buy professional photos of the cave since taking pics yourself harms the worms.
