A visit to Tamborine Mountain would not be complete without visiting the “Tamborine Mountain Glow Worm Caves” at Cedar Creek Estate Vineyard.
Opened in 2004, tours are approximately half an hour and will take you on an enlightening journey to another world. Walk through the rainforest on our raised boardwalk and bridge over the starting place of pristine Cedar Creek to get to the caves. Our friendly water dragons will meet you at the entrance to our amazing Glow Worm Caves.
The caves consist of two large chambers interlinked by tunnels.
The first chamber is the “presentation cave”, where you will be shown an audiovisual display on glow-worms and the construction of the caves. This chamber is complete with very realistic formations (speleothems), such as stalagmites and stalactites, water features and flow stone.From this stunning cave, you will be guided through the magical “glow-worm cave”, filled with thousands of glowing glow-worms! The experience is one you have to see to believe!
Glow Worms require very specific environmental conditions and the cave has been fitted with equipment to maintain these conditions throughout the year, thereby providing the perfect environment for a healthy Glow Worm colony year round. It is envisaged that the cave population will become self-sufficient. The prey items (small fly species) needed to sustain the glow-worms are currently breeding and developing in a mulch and pond system within the cave.
