About
Welcome to the Tamborine Mountain Glow Worm Tours! During our tours you will experience the results of our ground-breaking conservation project, as we guide you through our spectacular purpose-built cave, filled with thousands of glowing Glow Worms! We offer the only opportunity in Queensland to see Glow Worms during the day, and over the course of 30 minutes, you’ll meet a Glow Worm up close and learn all about their life cycle and behaviour. Our cave features a colony of native Mt. Tamborine Glow Worms, and is part of a long-term breeding program, so your admission helps support and ensure the survival of the species in South East Queensland for future generations!

We enjoyed the glow worm experience and felt good to contribute to the preservation of this amazing insect. Our experience was soured by the average customer service. The lady at the bookings desk seemed uninterested and May as well have shhhed me up when I enquired about the next booking. For which she booked me on the second next available when there was a tour available in 5 mins. Guess she was trying to be difficult. The next tour was announced and a lovely lady asked if we wanted to join it.. may as well saves waiting. The tour guide then seemed flustered by this change. The tour was fine.. just felt awkward asking questions, when u get told to wait a minute I’ll get to that eventually!.. I found that very rude and disrespectful. I don’t think I’ll go back I felt like an annoyance.

The staff was friendly and the tickets were cheap (AUD 16 & 9). However, the glow worm experience was pretty boring because it literally just looks like. extremely tiny little blue lights in a pitch-black cave. The cave itself is quite small, we were only in there for about 10mins.

Not worth the long drive up to Tamborine Mountain. I think the walking pathways are more worthwhile.

Really awesome set up. It’s a human-made cave but it’s purpose built to preserve the glow worm population. Also lots of cute frogs to see in frog hollow. Would go again.

Recently a girlfriend and I visited Mount Tambourine and booked a few tours while there and Glow Worm caves was one of them. I had been recommended by a few people before but I feel they definitely talked it up and I was prepared for more than what I got. We get to the caves and we are booked in for the first tour of the day at 10am and was told to come 15 mins early to fill out forms etc. We got there at 20 to 10 and nothing was open, not even the cafe to get a coffee or anything like that. Then the doors didn't open until 2 mins til 10 so, so much for us coming 15 mins early. Then when we get to the caves we watch an informative video but in watching that realised how small glow worms are and they r very hard to see, anyone with sight issues should not go because there would be no point. It is super dark and only the tour guide can use a light to view them and show them and we had 12 people in our tour and so most of the time my friend and i were just standing dark waiting to move up. When we got out and we saw the next tour going through with double the amount of people we were at least grateful of that but it was defintely a let down and not something I will recommend to anyone. Thank you

An amazing experience to learn about glow worms. Some very interesting facts. The kids enjoyed it as much as the adults. Don't forget to book ahead so you don't miss out.

Visited Mt Tambourine Glow worms as a family, Harrison was the tour guide, he sit himself a high standard as having the best (or worst) dad jokes and he succeeded, the glow worm tour was for about 30 mins but it was worth it, there was a short video followed by an action packed (joke) tour of the man made cave system, Guide was so passionate and informative about the glow worms the time flew by, Would I recommend it to people visiting? Hell yes, there is also a frog exhibit but highlight was the glow worms,

An enjoyable and informative visit learning about the little critters. Inspiring to learn it is privately funded. Great to see such passion.

My Children are 9, 12 and 13. We made the trip to Tamborine Mountain to check out the Glow Worms as my wifd had been wanting to do it for years. It cost about $45 for the 5 of us and the Glow worm tour went for about 30 mins. The Tour guide Dayna, was very knowledgable and made the kids laugh, overall being a good experience. The kids also loved checking out the Frogs aswell. If you are in the area, definately worth a stop.
