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!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is what I call "a daylight robbery". I went there with my husband, one student, one child 5 years old, 1 child 3 years old. The total price for two adults, 1 student and 2 kids was over 100$. This is not a cave! Its about 20m (if that) dark tunnel with a few glow worms. You will at the beginning watch a video following with an incredibly small tunnel like cave, where squashed in - you will listen to your tour guide give you some information if you manage to hear him at all. I don't understand how is this thing even legal. It is something that should be free with possible donations. There is no way that something like this costs 29$ per person. I am truly disgusted by this appalling scam on people attempting to see something as amazing as glow worm caves are. If you do want this experience - New Zealand would be a place to go.

Sorry to say this was quite disappointing. Good preservation effort, but expensive for the experience. 10 minute video, then crowded into a small very dark manmade cave. Tiny faint dots of lights viewed for 10-15 minutes accompanied by loud explanations by guide, which if you're at the end of the line are hard to understand due to acoustics. My 6 y.o. grandson was squashed in and quite frankly bored after a few minutes. The frog house was laughable, where were the frogs or anything else much? On a positive note the grounds were lovely and we enjoyed the lizards.

We arrived early for our tour of the caves and spent an interesting 20 minutes talking to Cain (our tour guide) who was cleaning out the stick insects in the gift shop. Cain then lead us into the caves, where we watched a video about the glowworms. Afterwards we followed Cain into the main cave, which was very dark but twinkling with lights from the glowworms. It was a surreal experience and Cain gave us a very informative talk. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would like to thank him for making the tour so special.

What an experience have never seen glow worms before so close and the work that they do here is second to none. You are unable to take photos or video as this can hurt them and stop them from glowing.
Check out the frog hollow too as they are super cute 🥰

A quick, cheapish and easy way to see the famous glow worms in a more environmentally friendly way. It's a quick tour - probably less than 30 mins in total so pair with other activities on the mountain but certainly its a must do activity!

If you've seen a glow worm before, skip this place. We paid $23 which I can only regard as a "donation" to a possibly worthwhile conservation cause. The tour itself was very quick and the commentary was difficult to follow. Poor value for $23. Unimpressive cafe fare too!
