  • Arrived at 9am for a tour at 9:30. On the door written open from 10. Got a little worried that we fell in a tourist trap online but not at all. Different hours for holiday season. The comments read...

  • It’s marketed as Glow Worm Caves. I did expect a natural cave; however it’s man made. As a caver that was a disappointment. If you want to learn about glow worms then it’s a good tour. More...

  • (1) We felt cheated because the cave did not look anything like the picture in the brochure, as attached. (2) Entrance fee AUD 19 per pax. For what we experienced, it only worth AUD 1. Not kidding...

  • The glow worms are simply stunning to view, never realised how tiny and intricate they are - or how endangered! The tour guide was so funny and yet raised some very valuable points about our ecological systems that we hadn’t considered before. He was also very patient and happy to answer questions. The frog exhibit after was a lot of fun and we loved seeing the different breeds and their history. Very affordable, lovely merchandise to purchase, and disability friendly too which is great. Can’t take photos of the glow worms in the cave (because a, it can kill them and b, go visit yourself?) but got one of first cave area to give you an idea. There are rails to hang onto if you want and everyone has a little glow in the dark piece so you don’t get lost - not that you really can but helps if you have a fear of the dark
  • Absolutely amazing the glow worms cave. I love it great experience with group of people on tour inside the glow warms cave. Was rainy day didn’t walk around much but still make it to see the magic worms in the dark. Next going again when nice sunny day for sure. 😊
  • Great little outing especially for families. Definitely a once in a lifetime need to see experience. Fascinating and informative. Supporting conservation of the species is something I was happy about. It's not an all day experience but lovely none the less.
  • A great activity to bring the family or a date. The glow worms are really amazing and the conservation work is good to support. A beautiful location tucked away and serene. There's food and wine tasting near by as well. There's a little park with benches near the creek and a reptile exhibit. The chocolate port was to die for. It had a really strong chocolaty flavour without being too sweet or having a strong punch from the alcohol.
  • Great little walk in the rainforest, nice view and fresh air. We went for the half hour wormhole tour, good for educational purposes but the cave is too small to explore, phones and cameras are not allowed to take photo even when flash light off, which is a bit disappointing, just be aware of this.
