Awesome experience! Highly recommended! A must do tour!

A few pick up locations to choose from which is great! Joined the tour with 3 young kids (the youngest one is only 3.5) and we were wondering if they could manage the bush walk. Turned out it's a great experience to them. Very friendly (kid friendly too) and professional tour guide, Amber, whom you can tell how passionate she's in the nature. From the moment we stepped into the rain forest, Amber started to tell us all the knowledges about it. She kept looking for different natural features to show us. Often crack you a joke as well. It wasn't boring at all. The glow worms were fascinating to watch. Even though there was a bit of bush walk, everything worth it. After the walk, we enjoyed some very nice chocolate cake and hot drinks in a cafe nearby. Highly recommended to those who are in love with nature. Must wear shoes with non-slip sole as you will walk on wet surface

Short trip to spotlight at a national park and see some glowworms.

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!
