The Basics

The Glow Worm Caves can only be experienced on a guided tour. The tour begins with a short walk through rehabilitated rain forest to the caves, which consist of two chambers. Watch an audiovisual presentation about glowworms as your eyes adjust to the dark in the first chamber, then be guided around the second chamber, among a colony of thousands of native Mt. Tamborine glowworms.

Visit the Glow Worm Caves independently or as part of a sightseeing tour, and combine your visit with stops in Mt. Tamborine National Park. Additional sites can include nearby Gallery Walk or Springbrook National Park.

Brian was a great host, very knowledgeable and friendly. The hikes were not very hard, but there are steps. The sites were beautiful. We had 10 people on our tour and it was the perfect size. This was a great day trip!

Lovely day, James our guide very helpful and informative. Just a pity that the drought meant the creeks and waterfalls were not very full.

Springbrook andTamborine Rainforest Tour Incl Natural Bridge and Glow Worm Cave
Seeing the glow worms & waterfalls up close was a very memorable experience! It started to rain the moment we enter the rain forest, which was like icing on the cake! Overall the entire package is very ideal if you are looking for spending a day without too much exertion. Shane was our tour guide & he did a splendid job! P.S. Try to avoid sitting in the back seat of the minivan if possible ;)

Springbrook andTamborine Rainforest Tour Incl Natural Bridge and Glow Worm Cave
This trip is a day full of nature experience. After driving up into the montains there are nice walks, not to exhausting. The nature itself is just great. THere is some driving to and from the place, however, this is acceptable. The guide even pointed out another short hike ínstead of the visit at the tourist village.

Springbrook andTamborine Rainforest Tour Incl Natural Bridge and Glow Worm Cave
Thoroughly enjoyed the walks through the rain forests. Also the glow worm cave walk through. I would have preferred to have a longer time at the lunch venue. And also a longer time in the rain forests. The time for 'shopping' at Tamborine could have been excluded I think. Really do not need to go on a tour to shop for an hour.

Glowworms in Springbrook National Park

To see glowworms in their natural environment, head to Springbrook National Park, where they can be found near Natural Bridge. In their natural environment, glowworms can only be seen at night, so bring lights to find your way. Avoid shining lights on glowworms, however, as it can cause them to stop glowing and potentially kill them. Also avoid using insect repellant, which can kill glowworms.
