Our glow worm cave is accessible via an even concrete pathway, however please note there are two steps leading down to the cave, and we are not outfitted with ramps. Unfortunately, due to the nature of our cave, electric wheelchairs and prams are not permitted. Please enquire with us directly to learn how we can accommodate your visit. 

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, eco-friendly tour experience.

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. Please note, photography is not permitted inside the caves.
