A great little rainforest walk that's great by day but almost better by night due to the various glowworm grotto's along the way. Bring your torch!

Walking through a rainforest in the night and watching thousands of glowworms was quite awesome.

Walking in the rainforest in the night, best when you can see the stars. It is magical.

A great little walk by day but at night the forest comes alive with twinkling glowworms. Great fun for all.

We went by ourselves (we saw some tours too) walking at night and it was really nice.
