While the trip seemed a bit short, Henry was a good and knowledgeable guide and very friendly. The glow worms were the highlight along with information about the forest. The owners of the stop for tea and cakes were very warm and welcoming.

Slightly different because you would normally associate Australia with tours closing down by 5-6 pm. This one starts at 6 pm with the pickup and finishes by about 10 pm. It also involved an interesting detour on the way to the caves and our guide (Duff) who had a witty humor.
