About Glow Worms

The Natural Bridge Glow Worms

Unlike Mt Tamborine Glow Worm Caves, the Natural Bridge (sometimes called the natural arch) is a naturally occurring sanctuary for glow worms. If you're happy to make the trek through the bush to the Natural Bridge at twilight during the warmer months, you'll be rewarded with a spectacular glow worm display in their natural habitat.

Natural Bridge or Mt Tamborine Glow Worm Caves?

People sometimes ask "Where should I see glow worms when visiting the Gold Coast?". We would answer "It depends what sort of experience you're looking for". There is a real charm to seeing any wildlife in its natural habitat, and the Natural Bridge Circuit is definitely the place to do this. However, there are other factors to consider.
