Project Description

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 habitats. Visiting 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.

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.
