Mt Tamborine National Park 4WD Nocturnal Rainforest and Glow Worm Tour
Wonderful wildlife tour led by Tapio, a biologist doing research at a local University. He was incredibly knowledgeable in all things Australian wildlife, beyond animals, with extensive information on plants, habitats, and environmental changes. The reviews are correct in explaining this is a lesisurely tour to seek out wildlife. It is not a series of rainforests hikes or uphill climbs. It is a slow and calme expert-guided expedition of easily traversed terrain in the search of some of Australia's native creatures. If you are interested in discovering these creatures in their natural habitat outside of the confines of a zoo and understanding their ecosystem, this is a wonderful tour!
