We went for a short walk to the Glow Worm dell. Easy to find, park and access. Incredible to see this spectacular nature. Worthwhile visiting.

Did this on our last night along with many others. Was expecting a bit more of a show as far as the number of Glow worms but its only a minute walk nrom the road and something that is worth a quick visit after dark

Definitely worth the visit and effort it is quite spectacular. Surprising the amount of people there also enjoying the experience. Definitely need a torch as there is no lighting.

Thoroughly enjoyed the very short walk to the glow worms, could've stood there for ages just looking.

You can’t see anything in the daylight.. You will start guessing which is which.. It’s best to go in the night time.. We were so amazed and we enjoyed the moment as if you were on the other dimension (That’s how I described it) We took a photo but we made sure that our camera has no flash..
It’s really worth it plus it’s free..
It’s roughly 20 min walk from the centre.
This place is not overrated.

This was amazing. To get so close to them was great. Everywhere that you looked you could see these beautiful creatures. Only 5mins from town - well worth the trip

I think our expectations were a bit too high! We were expecting a scene out of avatar! When we arrived we saw groups of people staring at dark walls...we had to ask them to point out the glow worms. They do glow...but not enough to light up the space...we parked at the bottom of the hill, it’s a two min walk to the cave area...glad we were only staying 15mins away, wouldn’t of traveled much longer for this but hey it shows us how wonderful nature is right?

This is well worth a visit at night time, very easy walk to the dell where you will see plenty of glow worms. Kids were fascinated, parents were grateful to not have to pay lots of $$

Well worth the 60 second walk. An absolute treasure.

Who could have thought such a fascinating piece of natural beauty could be so close to a State Highway.

Totally worth it.
