Thousands of spectacular glow worms have created a magical colony in a hidden canyon only a short distance from our retreat. Our fully guided night walk takes you right into the heart of our glow worm colony and offers a rare opportunity to observe some of nature’s very special light emitting creatures living in our own backyard!
Imagine walking through a dark canyon surrounded by thousands of spectacular Glow Worms. As you turn off the head torches and let your eyes adjust to the low-light conditions, more and more of these fascinating creatures begin to reveal themselves right before your eyes.
Our small personalised tour includes an interactive fact session as you walk down into the heart of our private Glow Worm habitat. You will have plenty of time to experience up-close these exciting bio-luminescent creatures in an undisturbed natural environment.
Supervised photo opportunities will be provided with assistance from the tour guide - so make sure you bring your smartphone or camera.
