15. Natural Bridge Glow Worms

Visit the Natural Bridge in the Numinbah Valley after sunset and you will be dazzled by the glow worms covering the ceiling of the cave. We recommend this activity during Summer as there are more worms in the warm and wet weather.

Don’t forget to bring a torch for walking down the stairs. However, make sure you never shine the light directly at the glow worms. Keep an eye out on your way to the cave as you might spot some glow worms between the rocks around the path.


16. Hot Air Ballooning with Balloon Aloft

Experience one glorious hour of flying over the beautiful Gold Coast hinterland! This is one hour in your life you and your partner will never forget. Book now (Use code “HelloGC” to save 10%).
