Embark on a bus tour from the Gold Coast to visit the famous Glow Worm caves on Tamborine Mountain in a daytime setting. Make the most of your luxury bus transport, ensuring a comfortable and convenient journey through the scenic landscapes of Scenic Rim and Tamborine Mountain. Unlike traditional glow worm tours, explore the caves during the day, eliminating the need to venture out late at night and giving you an up close perspective on the glow worms' natural habitat. These caves are man made and designed to help you see them up close without causing them any harm, they thrive in this environment and are actively breeding to help increase numbers. 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 photo opportunities to capture the stunning landscapes of the Scenic Rim region. 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. Additionally, make the most of optional experiences with our Hop on Hop off bus to enhance your visit. Choose to visit an award-winning winery for a guided tasting. If you have a sweet tooth, indulge in fudge tasting, which is offered for free. Our Hop on Hop off bus will stay on Tamborine Mountain for the afternoon and see other sights such as waterfalls, Shopping, St Bernards Hotel and other local attractions, this departs the mountain at 3:30pm
