What you'll do

On our nocturnal walk into the rainforest we will search for wildlife and other critters lurking in the wilderness. Ever heard of a Pademelon? Or a Tawny Frogmouth? Maybe we'll see one if we are lucky!

We'll definitely see lots of Glow Worms and learn some fun facts about them! Guaranteed Glow Worm Sighting! (Free return trip if none are seen).

Our tours are designed to avoid other people and see as many new things as possible, most nights the only humans that we see in the area are those in our vehicle - which is generally a small group of 5 or 6.

If the sky is clear it is a beautiful spot to see the stars and the night sky, before watching the sunrise (depending on departure time) over the Gold Coast from a beautiful viewpoint!
Other things to note
Subject to weather. For rain - umbrellas can be provided, will be cancelled if considered unsafe.

As the Senior Tour Operator at Gold Coast Rainforest Tours I have established myself as one of the highest rated guides in the area. I am frequently leading nature tours through the area and I have a good knowledge of the surroundings.

Fully insured and hold the required QPWS permits

In my private time I love being in the outdoors and am almost constantly surrounded by nature, either in the wilderness or the beach.

I also host day tours through the rainforest or visiting kangaroos and koalas in their natural habitat. If you would like to do either of them let me know, we might be able to do it on the same day!

Pete was great, picked us up from the hotel. Drove us out about 45 mins to Rain Forest, beautiful lookout spot. Then we were given flash lights and trekked though the rain-forest, we saw lots of glow worms, plus some beautiful water falls. And some rare glowing fungi. The guide Pete, really knows a lot about the rain-forest and really respects the environment and native animals. He given pointed out a possum and other animals on the ride home.

Pete is lovely, and he picked up us punctually. The trip is extraordinary, and Pete told us about what we should pay attention to so not to hurt the glow-worms. On the way to and back, Pete also explained the local history. I strongly recommend this trip!
