Location

Journey up into the Gold Coast Hinterland for an evening tour of the mesmerising Glow Worm Caves within Springbrook National Park. Nestled in the mountains behind the glitz and the glamour of the Gold Coast main strip, the Gold Coast Hinterland is a natural mecca just waiting to be explored. With this small group tour, you'll embark on a journey into the National Park to experience the rainforest come to life at night. Once you've reached the National Park, you'll leave the bus for an evening rainforest walk to the glow worm caves and a beautiful cascading waterfall.

Under the leadership of a local guide, you'll be treated to commentary about the history, culture and lifestyle of the regions traditional Indigenous land owners and their interactions with this special place as well as the park's unique plants and animals. Before you begin the journey home you'll enjoy some star grazing.

The tour guide was thorough and comprehensive in his explanations along the tour. We were picked up and dropped off at Surfers Paradise / Broadbeach in a timely manner. The skies were clear at the time for stargazing. We were given torches to help us walk through Springbrook National Park safely at night.

Sally Hoang 2 weeks ago

The tour included: a 1 hour trip to get to Springbrook National Park from Surfers Paradise/Broadbeach, some stargazing along the way, then a 1km walking trail including a glow worm cave (small torches are given to you to use to help you walk in the dark which you get to keep after the tour), then a 1 hour trip back to Surfers Paradise/Broadbeach. The glow worms looked like little blue stars scattered across the cave walls. Along the way, the tour guide talked about Gold Coast attractions, some star constellations, and some trees along the walking trail. Because the walk was pitch black apart from the torches, you couldn’t see the surroundings well so it is better to go during the daytime if you want to see the rest of the natural scenery of Springbrook National Park. Also, the glowing mushrooms are also only visible during the warmer summer months.

I travelled together with my husband and 3 kids (ages 5, 10, 14). It was really an amazing experience seeing the glow worms and we enjoyed stargazing even the moon was a little brighter. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommended for everyone.

We were a family of 8
Nuryaminah Rustam Pane 8 months ago

We were a family of 8, so we bought 2 family package (2A+1C) with an additional 1A and 1C, so that's supposed to cover for 5A + 3C. However, they missed out on 1 of our (2A+1C) package so we had to miss out as the tour bus is fully booked. Since our holiday is tight and we couldn't reschedule, thus we're awaiting for a refund for those who missed out. Otherwise, it was a nice trip to stargaze and look at glow worms but it is also dependent on the condition of the weather in order for a really good experience.

Amazing glow worms to be seen
Jolyn Moh 9 months ago

Amazing glow worms to be seen, which they are not able to be found anywhere else in the world apart from Australia and New Zealand. I think it's worth seeing for sure! Looking like constellations but just 1 metre away. Since it's at night too, it's quite worthwhile!

Best price you can get
Andika Fiqri 10 months ago

Best price you can get. So worth it! I have been searching the net, comparing different prices and deals, nothing beats this. The attraction is good. The glow worms are really nice and it was a good short trail. At the end of the day, not everyday or anywhere you can see glow worms. Great experience! Stargazing was awesome too!

Booking was fast with follow up action to confirm the tour
Yvelia Tan 11 months ago

Booking was fast with follow up action to confirm the tour. The Glowworm tour went smoothly. It was fun and the duration was just right. Tour was small with only 4 of us. The guide was friendly and humorous. There were plenty of glow worms due to the drizzling weather. Had a great trip. Thanks, Experience Oz!

We joined in Glow Worm Tour in Springbrook National Park
Chiyo Yamashita 2 years ago

We joined in Glow Worm Tour in Springbrook National Park. Glow worms in the cave were so beautiful, and we could also see some on the way to the looking points. The weather was not that good, so we could not see stars, unfortunately. But we could still see some bright stars in the sky. Not just awesome glow worms and stars, our tour guide was so knowledgeable and let us lots of things trying to show some wild animals in the park. We would absolutely to take this tour again some time.

The tour was a great experience for us
Polly Zheng 2 years ago

The tour was a great experience for us. The guide was patient, informative and passionate in sharing about information of the glow worm tour and other attractions in Gold Coast as well. We enjoyed the tour a lot and learn more than just about glow work but also the rainforest and its inhabitants. It was amazing!
