Easy bus pick up if you don't drive. Even though it's a short tour it definitely made it worth your while. Lots of spotlighting of flora and fauna along the track particularly frogs and inverts. The walk is not difficult so great for all ages and abilities, just not wheelchairs. The glowworms were a great end to the walk however unless you have a really good camera you will have a hard time trying to take a photo of them. Ended the night in a vintage homestead that also serves as F&B/accommodation (definitely want to check it out during the day) and had some dessert to end the night. Big thanks to Jamie who was our lovely tour guide, I learned heaps from you!
Short trip to spotlight at a national park and see some glowworms.

A very interesting tour, a few creepy crawlers and glow worms and of course the beautiful waterfalls glowing in the light of the moon.

A great 4WD ride to the rainforest. Delicious light refreshment. An interesting creepy crawlers special the door trap spiders (thanks to Duff our tour guy) and of course the beautiful view of Gold Coast from the top of Mt.Tamborine and the glow worm and waterfalls are some of the highlights of the tour. Highly recommended.

It was really heart wrenching and mind-blowing

It was really heart wrenching and mind-blowing. The explanations of the tour guide Herry was really appreciated, to see glow worm is this much I couldn’t believe, and how could I forget the mystery cake which was already included in our package everything was up to mark.

Fantastic tour

Fantastic tour. Aaron was very knowledgeable and we had a great time. The cake and hot chocolate were a tasty dessert. Saw a lot of lizards, a crab and even a snake on the way out. The walk was quite easy on the way down and up. The 4WD was fun. Overall 10/10!

It's a total excitement to ride on a 4WD to see wildlife in the rainforest

It's a total excitement to ride on a 4WD to see wildlife in the rainforest. The stunning starry sky is a value added enjoyment of this tour. When we walked through the trail to visit a waterfall, the guide showed us the glow worm and wildlife along the way. It was really a wonderful experience in Queensland.

Really great

Really great, the tour guide was super and showed us the nature of the rain forest. Will definitely recommend this to my friends!

Take a light jacket or some warmer clothes with you as the temperatures in the Gold Coast Hinterland can be much cooler than down on the beach.
