The background and information was great made enjoyable by the knowledge and interaction with the guide. I think planning a visit to fit in with other activities in the area is advised.

We went as a family and had a lovely time. The caves were amazing and so lovely and magical to seeing our children's faces light up when we got into the dark of the cave and saw the Glow worms. That was a love for...More

Quite a long drive to this little man=made glow worm cave. The guide was really good and it's worth a visit only if you are in the area or a convenient stop to see glow worms (not in their natural habitat).

Having visited glow worm caves in New Zealand and elsewhere was pleasantly surprised at how much more detail was provided by our guide on this occasion including close up look at the body parts of the glow worms. Well worth the visit.

I had mixed feeling about this afterwards. To begin positively, we had a tour guide called Tim and he was a brilliant and well informed tour guide. Very enthusiastic and clearly passionate about his job and geography. He was also very welcoming and polite. Unlike...More

Hi JB, Unfortunately this is not our establishment would you be so kind to remove your review, why not come up to the top of Tamborine Mountain and see our glow worms. Regards Management

This wasn't quite what I expected. The name suggests there are multiple caves, however, there really is only 1. Well, 2 I suppose, but one is for watching a video and the other contains the glow worms and is maybe 30 metres long. You walk...More

Hi Fransiska, The glow worm cave is a controlled environment and therefore is not affected by the seasons. Tours take up to 20 people per tour and depart every half hour. To book a tour we require 10 or more people. You can... More

it's totally safe. We watched a short video and spent about 30min in the cave. The guide was attentive and helpful, so not to worry. Not flash light though 😉
