Glow Worm Tours on Tamborine Mountain

We are OPEN! Bookings are essential. 

Glow Worm Tour

We accept student and concession cards, students are high school students and university students, and we have discounted ticket options for children. Please record all members of your group, even babies!)

During a tour, our biologists will lead you down through our rainforest boardwalk into our glow worm habitat. Here you get the chance to meet a glow-worm up close, and see their sticky strands and glowing bums! Because our site is not a natural area, our glow worm sightings are guaranteed.

Each visitor is given the chance to have a much closer interaction than is normally possible in the wild. Unlike most wild glow worms, our colony is visible during the daytime. It is accessible via a flat, concrete pathway that is accessible for both young and old.

PHOTOGRAPHY IS NOT PERMITTED INSIDE THE CAVE.

This includes non-flash photography and video. For the safety of the glow worms we ask that there is no photography in the cave. Photography is allowed leading up to and of the cave.

NO LIGHT UP SHOES IN THE CAVE. 

Unfortunately, electronics are not allowed with our glow worms.

NO LOUD NOISES.

Loud noises can cause the glowworms to turn off their glow. When visiting the glow worm cave, and for the enjoyment of everyone, please keep noise levels to a minimum. 

Government regulations require us to collect phone numbers, names and addresses of each person in your group, even children. For families living in the same household, simply copy and paste the same household address, and include the parent/guardians phone number for any children in your group. This information will be securely stored for contract tracing purposes for 58 days, and never used or shown to any other parties except official Queensland Health if requested.

 *Please note, if you do not receive a confirmation email and booking confirmation, we DO NOT have your booking, and you may not get a tour. Please call us if you have any issues with your booking.*

How It Works:

Our site on Tamborine Mountain is a glow worm sanctuary. It is built to allow visitors to see glow worms during the daytime, without damaging delicate wild habitatsVisiting glow worms in the wild often causes damage to their colonies, so our cave was built to provide an alternative option. We offer tourists a sustainable, ecofriendly tour experience.
