Location

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 you'll enjoy some 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.

Yvelia Tan 2 weeks ago Booking was fast with follow up action to confirm the tour. The Glowworm tour went smoothly. It was fun and the duration was just right. Tour was small with only 4 of us. The guide was friendly and humorous. There were plenty of glow worms due to the drizzling weather. Had a great trip. Thanks, Experience Oz!

We joined in Glow Worm Tour in Springbrook National Park
Chiyo Yamashita 9 months ago

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
Polly Zheng 12 months ago

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
Amy Chung 1 year ago

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
Annie Nguyen 1 year ago

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).

We had enjoyed tour with my kids
Vikas Srivastava 1 year ago

We had enjoyed tour with my kids. The pickup was on time. The waterfall is best in the glow worm tour I have seen. Guides also explained everything nicely for us not native English speakers!

The glow worm tour was an extremely interesting experience and I learnt a lot from our very knowledgable guide
Phyllis Chow 1 year ago

The glow worm tour was an extremely interesting experience and I learnt a lot from our very knowledgable guide. The guide spent a lot of effort explaining about native plants and animals to us during the drive and throughout our walk. Kudos to him for kindly waiting for us at the lobby for an extended period of time as we had to look for a lost wallet right before the tour. All in all, a very insightful tour!

I had a good time
Andrew Liu 2 years ago

I had a good time. The tour guides were well-informed about Gold Coast and its attractions and the wildlife during the bus ride. The bus was clean and comfortable as expected. The tour itself was excellent as the tour guide described the various trees and showed us a myriad of insects and we saw a few animals as well! The glow worm cave was beautiful.

Me and my friends had a decent time with the glowworm tour and had a lot of fun
Yinpeng Zhao 2 years ago

Me and my friends had a decent time with the glowworm tour and had a lot of fun. However I feel the tour can be improved if it was a bit longer since we felt we spent more time on the bus travelling and picking up people than we had bushwalking. Other than that it was very good, the tour guides were very friendly and informative.

We thought the tour guide was fantastic and had a lot of information about the glow worms and star gazing however I would have liked 10 minutes more in the glow worm cave
Hayley Noorderbroek 2 years ago

We thought the tour guide was fantastic and had a lot of information about the glow worms and star gazing however I would have liked 10 minutes more in the glow worm cave. This time was then dedicated to stopping every minute to look at tiny spider or other insects that wasn't as fascinating. Over all the glow worm tour and stargazing was quite enjoyable.
