Book Now - Evening Glow Worm Tour

Thousands of spectacular glow worms have created a magical colony in a hidden canyon only a short distance from our retreat. Our fully guided night walk takes you right into the heart of our glow worm colony and offers a rare opportunity to observe some of nature’s very special light-emitting creatures living in our own backyard!

Imagine walking through a dark canyon surrounded by thousands of spectacular Glow Worms. As you turn off the head torches and let your eyes adjust to the low-light conditions, more and more of these fascinating creatures begin to reveal themselves right before your eyes.

Our small personalised tour includes an interactive fact session as you walk down into the heart of our private Glow Worm habitat. You will have plenty of time to experience up-close these exciting bio-luminescent creatures in an undisturbed natural environment.
Supervised photo opportunities will be provided with assistance from the tour guide - so make sure you bring your smartphone or camera.

BONUS: For a limited time in December, join our Glow Worm Tours for a chance to see Fireflies AND Glow Worms (conditions apply).

Average Duration: 1 hour

Dress Code

Please wear enclosed shoes that are suitable for walking such as runners, walking boots, volleys/sand shoes etc. As the walking track may have wet, slippery, muddy and uneven surfaces, please ensure your shoes have appropriate grip/traction. Thongs, High heels, Ugg Boots and similar footwear are not allowed to be worn on the tour.

Weather Information

The Tour will generally operate in the rain – in fact Glow Worms like the rain and often produce a more exciting display in wet weather.

In the event of wet weather, please assume the tour is going ahead as planned and proceed to the starting point. If an assessment is made that the weather conditions are unsafe the Tour Guide will inform participants as early as possible that it has been cancelled.

Other Information

Tours in December may include opportunities to view Fireflies. While every effort is made to provide tour participants with the chance to see fireflies during the tour, certain viewing conditions may not result in fireflies being visible. There are many factors which are either uncontrollable or unknown that affect this outcome. Sometimes they just don't appear. We DO guarantee you will see Glow Worms. And MOST OF THE TIME during December we will see fireflies (but we can't guarantee you will see them).
