Australia’s only four wheel drive night tour that also includes a fully guided rainforest walk to local waterfall. On route take in the many types of wildlife that call the rainforest and eucalyptus forest home at night. The bonus to all this is we also view the Glow Worms in their natural environment.
Point of interests include coffee and cake at a local restaurant; guided rainforest walk to a waterfall at night time, view glow worms and nocturnal wildlife as you are guided to the waterfall; enjoy a secluded lookout over the Gold Coast skyline and stargazing – check out the Southern Cross.
Transport is in modern, luxury four wheel drive vehicles. Each guest gets a low watt torch (they don’t want to upset the glow-worms) for the guided walk.
Hotel drop off and pick up from Broadbeach, Surfers Paradise, Main Beach, or Southport is available.
From $142 to $148
