I went to these glow worm caves with my husband and sisters I was awestruck with them. It was a beautiful experience with the glow worms. The guide Alex was very good.

Beautiful lush green surroundings to explore with the family. Relaxing walk down each set of steps that leads you to a lovely waterfall near the caves where the glow worms are, lots of photo opportunities. Will definitely be back.

Went with friends and family and there was a bit of a wait. The caves and glow worms were interesting but a little compact.

Had a tour with Alex. Very funny and surprisingly interesting. Quite beautiful to look at in the man made cave.

This was a lovely, affordable tour for 30mins. It was amazing to find out that Australia has 10 types of glow worm, who nearly became extinct and the only other place in the world where you will find these glowing bugs is in New Zealand....More

This 30 minute guided tour was fun and educational at the same time. Plenty of parking though it was busy the day we went. We hadn't pre-booked and you don't need to really but we did have to wander around for an hour. The guide...More

it's totally safe. We watched a short video and spent about 30min in the cave. The guide was attentive and helpful, so not to worry. Not flash light though 😉
