It was a fantastic night out with Southern Cross tours. We were totally engaged with Sonya’s explanation on how the Gold Coast came about and all its interesting history as we made it up to the mountain. Our kids were very attentive to what Sonya had to say and were asking heaps of questions to which she answered knowingly. We enjoyed our cakes at the Manor and the highlight of the night was not only the glow worms but also the encounters with heaps of different animals along the way. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the night and highly recommend this tour.

I had Daniel for the evening rainforest and glow worm tour - he was amazing! He was super friendly, very knowledgeable and made sure we all got to see the wildlife around us. We got to see a snake, spiders, glow worms and much more. He even showed us a lookout with some stunning views. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone! Thanks Daniel!
