      Amazing. Rainbow Temple n the glow worm experience is something that you cannot forget. Our tour guide Chris was very friendly. Don't miss this if you are in Byron.

      Photos don't do it justice! Magical experience to places we wouldn't have visited on our own. Chris is a great tour guide with a passion for nature.

      Hi Olivia! Great to hear you had a great time! And yes, photos don`t do justice (especially for the glowworms)! Happy new year!

      Chris, the tour conductor is the best. The service is excellent. He offered his care and assistances to us throughout the whole journey. The stories told, music played and a break for meditation at the foot of a spring fall is just refreshing and inspiring. Oh, he played a flute piece in the night time rainforest. I found it enchanting and touching. This tour is unforgettable. Many thanks to Chris Cherie

      Chris was a great guide and host. He really knows his way around. We loved every part of this experience. The waterfalls were breath taking and the glow worms were amazing. The dinner and company was also great!

      Sightseeing Amongst Newfound Friends - Byron Bay
      Anna_C, Aug 2021
      Our guide, Cristiano, was wonderful! Very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. We had a relaxing drive through the hinterland to visit Whian Whian Falls followed by an intimate lunch at the Rocky Lake Dam. The highlight was when we arrived at a tranquil and private location, lost in the midst of the trees and forest, to really experience the essence of what it means to truly live a 'hippie' lifestyle. You can only access this spiritual place by joining this tour group, see the glow worms and experience a bohemian lifestyle! I do recommend!!
      Response from Host, Jan 2022
      Thank you Anna for such a lovely description of the Experience!
      Peaceful, adventurous and serene experience
      Zaza_C, May 2021
      Our tour guide Chris was very kind and knowledgeable. Best experience is listening to his flute skills whilst watching the glow worms in the dark. It was a very peaceful and serene experience. We had such a great time wondering around the Rainbow Temple, where the glow worm cave is located. It was an amazing place to explore and had such a calm and relaxing vibe. Had a wonderful time going for a hike as well to the top of a waterfall in Night Cap Park. All in all, had a marvelous time relaxing, being at peace and ejoyed the adventurous experience

      Thank you Zaza!

      Excellent tour. Not only did we see some great places but our guide really gave the tour a great atmosphere. He talked a lot about the lifestyle in the Byron Bay hinterland area and the history of how it began, sustainable and peaceful living, told us a bit about the glowworms, and did a little meditation with us and served delicious food. People with mobility issues should be aware that the climb down to the waterfall is quite rocky and people with claustrophobia should be aware that the glowworm tunnel is quite small and narrow. However, I was very pleased with this tour. I have been on many group tours and this one was especially memorable.

      Amazing Experience
      Ruben_M, Nov 2020
      An absolutely amazing experience. Chris is a great tour guide, very relaxed but also informative and truly cares about making it a fun time. If you're looking for something different in Byron and seeing beyond the tourists/beaches, I highly recommend this afternoon in the hinterland.

      Essential experience
      Geraldine_P, Nov 2020
      An essential experience for nature lovers, spiritual beings and those who are looking for an adventure. The tour takes you to a secret temple, hidden waterfall and ends with a meditation and delicious light vegetarian dinner in a forest. I highly recommend this tour for those looking to unwind, relax and escape the hustle and bustle in the city life.

      Bei der Hinterland Magic Glow Worm experience-Tour werden einem die schönsten Flecken Australiens gezeigt. Diese befinden sich fernab der Tourismus-Hotspots. Ganz nebenbei lernt man die Landesgeschichte Australiens besser kennen, und wird sogar zu einer gemeinsamen Meditation eingeladen. Auch das dort gebotene Essen hat sehr gut geschmeckt. Des weiteren war der Tour-Guide sehr freundlich, und hat alle Fragen, die ihm gestellt wurden zu unserer vollsten Zufriedenheit beantwortet, Alles in Allem hat diese Tour meine Erwartungen bei Weitem übertroffen. Die Orte, die ich hier sehen durfte waren wunderschön und einzigartig. Ich bedanke mich an dieser Stelle nochmals bei dem Tour-Guide für diesen unvergesslichen, wunderschönen Tag.
