Visit the Tamborine Forest Skywalk, the longest canopy walk in South East Queensland, which provides a bird’s-eye view of this beautiful pristine area. Continue on to Cedar Creek Winery for a guided tour through the purpose-built magical ‘glow worm cave’ filled with thousands of glowing worms. Be amazed at how bright these creatures glow when they are hungry! Enjoy a wine tasting of the Estate’s Wines and a hearty lunch before taking a stroll along Gallery Walk.
