Journey up into the Gold Coast Hinterland for an evening tour of the mesmerising Glow Worm Caves within Springbrook National Park. Nestled in the mountains behind the glitz and the glamour of the Gold Coast main strip, the Gold Coast Hinterland is a natural mecca just waiting to be explored. With this small group tour, you'll embark on a journey into the National Park to experience the rainforest come to life at night. Once you've reached the National Park, you'll leave the bus for an evening rainforest walk to the glow worm caves and a beautiful cascading waterfall.

Under the leadership of a local guide, you'll be treated to commentary about the history, culture and lifestyle of the regions traditional Indigenous land owners and their interactions with this special place as well as the park's unique plants and animals. Before you begin the journey home and if the weather permits, you'll enjoy supper in the forest (for an additional price) and star grazing.

Tours depart daily from 7pm or early if you require a hotel pick up, and return around 10:30pm. This is a great way to see the 'other' side of the Gold Coast that many miss.

We joined in Glow Worm Tour in Springbrook National Park

We joined in Glow Worm Tour in Springbrook National Park. Glow worms in the cave were so beautiful, and we could also see some on the way to the looking points. The weather was not that good, so we could not see stars, unfortunately. But we could still see some bright stars in the sky. Not just awesome glow worms and stars, our tour guide was so knowledgeable and let us lots of things trying to show some wild animals in the park. We would absolutely to take this tour again some time.

The tour was a great experience for us

The tour was a great experience for us. The guide was patient, informative and passionate in sharing about information of the glow worm tour and other attractions in Gold Coast as well. We enjoyed the tour a lot and learn more than just about glow work but also the rainforest and its inhabitants. It was amazing!

I had an awesome night in Natural Bridge

I had an awesome night in Natural Bridge. The tourist guide is great. He told us a lot of stories about Gold Coast and glow worms. I enjoyed it so much. Glow Worm cave is very beautiful at night. I also saw eels and green tree frogs in the forest. What a memorable trip and wonderful tourist guide! Thank you so much!

Our guide

Our guide, Tim, was entertaining and highly knowledgeable about the flora and fauna. We enjoyed the walking tour and the glow worms were wonderful (even though a little sparse given that it is the end of winter).
