This tour was great! I'd recommend it for people that want to see something different and unusual. We enjoyed the star gazing as well. We actually found out that the moon faces the opposite direction in Australia than it does in the northern hemisphere. Dinner was ok and the people were nice at the country club. If I had it to do over i'd skip the dinner and just take the tour.
This tour was amazing!! Our tour guide was great. It was so beautiful.
Our guide Darren was great! He was well informed about everything from stars to glow worms. He was funny and warm.
The glow worm cave was fascinating. The forest itself was mesmerizing. This tour..worth every penny!
Thrilling experience of walking accross the night rain forrest! The cave with glow worms left me wordless because of breathtaking emotions of the moment!

Totally fantastic! You will never see anything like this in your life, topped off by a clear night to see all the stars from the outback and a shooting star.

We had fantastic drivers and guides. Gave us a run down on the history of the Gold Coast and even suggested thing we could do on our holiday. I would also highly recommend the tour. Something you will never forget.
Great experience, definitely something you can experience in only a couple places! I recommend wearing long sleeves, pants and covered shoes. They do provide little torches as a light to guide your way through the park at night. The drive to the national park does include a windy road so something to consider before going on the tour if you get motion sickness. Our tour guide, Darren, was a great tour guide and was very informative.
Very interesting experience. The tour guide was knowledgeable and able to explain the forest and the ecosystem. The Stars were amazing that night.
CAUTION for singles or couples - Book your tour a couple of days BEFORE leaving the coast! I originally had mine booked for a Sunday night, but it was cancelled due to no other bookings (they need a minimum of 4 travellers). We rescheduled for Monday and went with a group of 4 others. Our guide was great, very knowledgable and did his best to engage with everyone, including translating fluently in Japanese. Very impressive! We were picked up right around the corner from our hotel and dropped back off at the door. The golf club where we had dinner was lovely. It's a pity we couldn't take pictures of the worms, but if you enjoy nature or are just looking for a nice night out, this tour is a must do.
My family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids, aged 10 and 8) went on this tour on our last night on the Gold Coast. Our guide was really knowledgeable, not only about glow worms, but about the history and geography or the area, and the stellar constellations and 'nearby' galaxies, which we observed on the return trip. We were also SUPER impressed by his bilingualism; the others in our tour group were Japanese without any English (as far as we could tell) and our tour guide switched seamlessly from explaining things in colloquial Aussie English to explaining them in colloquial Japanese so that neither party feeling lost or left out.
The only downside to the tour was the dinner: there was only really one course since cheap vanilla ice-cream and topping isn't really a dessert for adults
Really enjoyed this tour. The guide was fabulous and provided a lot of info not only about the glow worms but the gold coast itself.

Recommended as you can never see glow worms during daytime so you have to join an evening tour, but it is very crowded!

It was really nice to be able to see something unique...they were really a sight.
The tour guide was late to the pick-up and rush through the time in the national park.

The Glow Worm was worth visiting. But we were arranged to be with a huge group with tourists from HK and Mainland China, altogether about 50 people!!! We were divided into 5 small groups when visiting the cave because only small group of maximum 10 people were allowed to enter the park. And we needed to wait for the other 4 groups to finish since there was only one big coach. It was not pleasant and time wasting.
I did not enjoy being told I couldnt speak on the bus to my partner. No stargazing happened due to weather which is fine however no thoughtfulness was given seeing as it was advertised in the package. And I hardly think that a bread roll is considered as a course.Didnt enjoy eating arrangment at all
