Fantastic little tour

Ive read a few reviews stating that this was short but in my view its just a perfect time slot. Any longer and it would be just wasted. For those who believe it should be longer... read more

The tour took about an hour and the guide shared wonderful examples and about the habitat and life cycle of the glow worms (which were close to extinction and can only be found in Australia and New Zealand). The cave was 'glittering' with glow worms that created a magical learning experience for my family. 2 thumbs up.

After the disappointment of receiving a toy glow worm for Christmas instead of a real one I decided to take my 4-yr old son to the glow worm caves so he could see for himself why santa couldn't deliver. The 30-minute tour was the perfect length for him. The glow worms were spectacular and our tour guide Jules was knowledgeable... More

We attended our family's Friday Night Wedding, reception and followed then enjoyed the Glow Worms Tour today. The chapel, gardens, staff and wedding reception areas are first class, completely suitable for weddings. We all stayed locally and organized a coach to and from the wedding which was an excellent. The house wines for the wedding reception was so nice, I... More

Ive read a few reviews stating that this was short but in my view its just a perfect time slot. Any longer and it would be just wasted.

Don't get me wrong for what we saw it was very informative & interesting, just thought there would be more. The video lasts about 10mins followed by the time in the cave with the glums, making the overall time about half an hour. I wouldn't return in a hurry, but glad we went.

I am not a nature person in the slightest. Personally I wouldn't do this again. I don't ever want people to think that I want to take away from peoples business. This is my opinion and I want all to do as they see fit. BTW i have very few bad reviews as I am thankfully a very happy person... More

Educational, fun but short and sweet. Lasts for about 40mins. Since it's man made, I was wondering if all the glows were just little lights to make it more interesting.

The tour is ok and lasts for about 30 mins. Cost was $36 for 2 adults and 2 students, so getting a little up there. Not in a hurry to go again, but I would say it's a must do whilst up there. Interesting talk about glow worms though

Another semi expensive activity in the mountains - probably best done on a overcast day when you need to leave the beach / pool The kids did enjoy this but we went in the peak time and there was a little wait - not sure if you can book a time or not but we paid and then went for... More
