As darkness begins to fall, we’ll take you to a World Heritage listed national park, where we’ll swiftly change the glitzy lights of the lively Gold Coast for the tranquil and magical surrounds of the nearby mountains and rainforests.
Then it’s on to the glow worm cave, where you can experience thousands of glow worms lighting up the cave walls in a magnificent display of nature. The adventure continues as you look out for other native wildlife in the region on a small guided walk through the ancient canopies, passing colourful plant and bird life as you go. By torchlight, you’ll be able to watch nocturnal creatures hunt for food and shuffle around – something you’d never get to experience in the light of day.
On our final stop, you’ll have the chance to experience more of earth’s marvels. At the Springbrook Research Observatory, you can touch a meteorite and learn more about the starry display that lights up the sky overhead. For supper, we’ll tuck into tea and coffee before heading back to reality on the Gold Coast.
