Want to see the rainforest come alive at night time? Then, this tour is for you! On this fully-guided adventure, you will get to enter the forest and experience something that not many people have. Once you're picked up from your hotel, you will travel to the very zenith of the Tamborine Mountain. Warm-up over coffee, a cuppa, or hot chocolate and cake, as you admire the view of the starry sky. Then, set out on your guided rainforest walk.

Listen to your guide as they point out the unique plants and animals that call this amazing ecosystem home. Upon arrival at Curtis Falls, see a beautiful cascade located deep within the forest. This is where you will find an entire colony of glowworms - a sight to behold!
