Spend an evening taking in the dazzling show of light from thousands of Glow Worms, and the stars from Springbrook Observatory.
In Springbrook National Park, you’ll visit caves where glow worms brighten the dark backdrop. Be amused and delighted at the nocturnal antics of our unique native wildlife, and visit the fascinating observatory.
We pick up adventure seeking travellers at 6:00 pm daily, from your Gold Coast accommodation, for a five-hour enchanting escapade headed for the pristine Springbrook National Park. While here, you will be treated to the beautiful sight of glow worms sparkling under an unbelievable cave that’s been skilfully carved and in the making for millions of years, and surrounded by star speckled blue/black water in a pristine hinterland setting.
The naturally formed caves accommodate a large colony of glow worms (larvae of the insect Arachnocampa flava) and will touch the heart of every onlooker, young or old, and invoke childhood memories of fairyland. The exquisite hanging, brightly shining lights cascade and twinkle in the moonlight like lights on a Christmas tree. Fully guided informative treks hosted by our highly qualified eco-tour personal, take pride in showing off Australia’s loveliest World Heritage Listed National Parks – see this paradise as you have never seen it before.
Since time immemorial, humankind has been fascinated by the mysteries of our Solar System and its brightly lit twinkling stars. Whether intrigued by galaxies, nebulae, planets, comets and other oddities from outer space or want to see the man in the moon in real-time, this imaginative, purpose build, spinning dome building with two roll off roof observatories will leave you satisfied and a little more informed about the mysteries of the captivating celestial world that cocoons our wonderful planet.
