This was a great place to visit. We were picked up by bus with Scenic Tours & travelled about 50 minutes to visit Glow Worm Cave.

We visited springbrook last week while we were on holiday in Gold Coast. We did not take any guided tour but decided to do it ourselves. We started the trek to the cave from the carpark just after 7pm about dusk... It took us about 10-15 min walk from carpark... Path was nicely paved and there are also railings in... More

We came to the address today and we didn't see anything, after calling them, unfortunately, they were closed at this time. Better to confirm when you decide to come!

Went to see the glow worm caves at around 6pm and waited for the sun to fully set and the light to fade. Lovely walk down and even in the dusk a few glowing dots were easily seen. As the light fades the cave turns into a magical surreal place. As you may gather this was my first experience of... More

We didn't imagine how exciting it was to see glow worms, they were so much fun and so easy to get too.

went there the second time, but this time is at 5ish before sunset, so i can only see a few of glow worms there, which is disappointed. but i am sure there would be no crowds compare to later at night. and it was a great walk in the natual bridge / springbrook park.

Visited here as part of a tour package. As many others have mentioned, its quite an informative learning about the glow worms then exploring the surrounds. Our guide introduced us to some local flora & how it has been utilised - we even caught sight of some possums! There's also a pretty good view of the Gold Coast from here.... More

Was a lovely experience and well worth such a cheap price. The scientist took us through to see Glow Worm caves as well as through a few gardens. He was very informative and loved explaining about the worms, the spiders, and the different plants. He was also funny and had some hilarious stories to tell. I'm excited to come back... More

Had a good evening and experience at the glow worm caves. Was an interesting g drive up to the mountain with seeing wildlife and snake in the road and wild wallabies just feet away. We then went onto the observatory which was a very ingesting speach and star gazing. The tour was not cheap but worthwhile in doing.

Garry runs a great show here. The passion he holds for these creatures is clear from the depth of detail and enthusiasm he has in his stories and facts about the glow worms. The 'cave' itself is only a short walk from the research centre and boasts a modest collection of worms which was due to somebody selfishly sneaking in... More
