Really wanted to see the glow worms, was disappointed as you can't take photos (but I understand conservation etc.). It was a big let down, short guided tour through man made cave.

Had a fantastic time on my glow worm tour. The tour guide was funny and informative. I learnt a lot of interesting facts about glowworms and there were SO many inside the cave. A truely magical sight. I recommend everyone to see them.

Worth a visit. Tours run regularly but you may have to wait a little for the next available during busy periods. They also have a frog display worth seeing. The garden area is a good spot to look at local wildlife such as water dragons...More
