glowworms in Wellington Botanical Garden

I was reading about evening walks in the garden to see the glowworms. The list of dates ended with September. Are the glowworms still visible late November? Can one walk unescorted in the garden at night to see the glowworms or must one be part of a tour?

The glow worms are pretty much visible all year round, but it does need to be dark to spot them. Theoretically the Botanic Garden is open from dawn to dusk, but many entrances don't have gates, so I'm not sure how this is enforced. I've never had any problems when I've walked through there after dark. The entrance closest to the glow worms if off The Dell in Kelburn.
