Glow Worm Cave
Our cave was created to protect the local species of glow worms, Arachnocampa flava. Glow worms are actually fly larvae which glow in dark areas to attract and catch small insects near where glow worms reside. Glow worms are extremely useful in our Australian ecosystems, since they help control insect populations! The goal of our cave is to make an experience which is accessible for families, and highly beneficial to the wild glow worm populations.
Visiting the Tamborine Mountain Glow Worm Caves gives visitors the wholy unique opportunity to see glow worms glow during the daytime, and be surrounded by living lights. Since people have been diverted to our cave instead of local glow worm colonies, glow worm numbers in the wild have begun increasing again.
