Embark on a bus tour from Brisbane to visit the famous Glow Worm Caves on Tamborine Mountain in a daytime setting. Admire the local scenery from unique viewpoints and enjoy plenty of time to explore Tamborine Mountain at your own pace. Get picked up from Brisbane and begin a relaxing journey through the landscapes of Scenic Rim and Tamborine Mountain. Listen to commentary from your guide, then arrive at the man made Glow Worm Caves to explore during the day, eliminating the need to venture out late at night. Visiting glow worms in the wild has the potential to harm them as they die when light is on them this is a common occurrence for most tours but you can join this tour knowing that you will be lead by a conservationist in a cave specifically designed so that you are able to see them up close without a torch. Outside of the caves, marvel at the striking landscape of Tamborine Mountain National Park on a scenic drive, allowing you to enjoy the beauty of the surroundings without the need for extensive walking. Stop at various scenic lookouts, enjoying incredible photo opportunities. Relax and refresh yourself with some free time and tuck into your morning tea at restaurants, cafes, and local eateries. Don't forget your reusable water bottle to taste the fresh clean water straight from the mountain. If you have a sweet tooth, indulge in artisanal fudge tasting. Additionally, choose to visit an award-winning winery for a guided tasting, with an additional cost payable on-site. After your morning tour, stay on Tamborine Mountain for the afternoon with our Hop on Hop off bus service, explore local sights such as waterfalls, rainforest Skywalk or other local attractions and food.
