  • You must go after dark to see that glow worms which are pretty spectacular when you get a chance to see them but there a heaps of people and lots of those people do not understand that you can't see glow worms with you lights on. It's very important that you limit the amount of noise and light when trying to find glow worms because those thing can make them not shine their light. I would suggest going late at night, like 11pm or later, to ensure the majority of people have left and you can just turn your lights off let your eyes adjust and walk that track in serenity allowing the glow worms to amaze you
  • Walk around in the dark and you will see them everywhere!
