It ended up raining as we through the rainforest, but that seemed to only add to the trip. Thank goodness it was at the end because everyone was soaked, but everyone was happy. The glow worms were definitely the highlight of the trip. Along with the stop for lunch on your own at the cute little town before the glow worms. Highly enjoyed my time.

we had an amazing tour, even though it was raining and foggy that we barely could see any scenaries, the tour guide was really knowledgeable, provided so much information about suroundings and made trip fun also we were provided with some snacks which was nice.

Eddie our Driver and Tour guide is knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor. You will have a great time seeing the 5 beautiful breath taking WaterFalls and beech trees There is some light walking.

Walking through the bush at night is very cool indeed. The cake at the beginning in a fancy restaurant was a real treat too. Knowledgeable guide gave some excellent lessons in botany too. Thanks Bill!

It is my first trip here to Australia and when I arrived in Gold Coast I found many places to explore. It was a very good option to buy the trip with you. Excellent everything. Recommended.
