Tamborine Mountain Glow Worm Caves on the Gold Coast
Welcome to the Tamborine Mountain Glow Worm Caves! Come underground with us on a journey through our spectacular purpose-built caves.
The caves consist of two large chambers interlinked by tunnels. The first chamber is the "presentation cave" where you'll be shown an audio-visual display on the Glow Worms. This chamber is complete with very realistic formations such as stalagmites and stalactites, water features and flow stone. From this stunning cave, you will be guided through the magical glow worm cave, filled with thousands of glowing Glow Worms!
The experience is one you have to see to believe! And while you're at it check out the other fun activities you can do while you're spending your day at Tamborine Mountain.
Glow Worms require very specific environmental conditions and the cave has been fitted with equipment to maintain these conditions throughout the year, providing the perfect environment for a healthy Glow Worm colony all year round. It's envisaged that the cave population will eventually become self-sufficient. The prey items (small fly species) needed to sustain the glow-worms are currently breeding and developing in a mulch and pond system within the cave.
