Visit Marakoopa Cave to see the largest display of glowworms found in Australia. This wet cave, with four surface openings, is part of the Tasman Wilderness World Heritage Site, declared in 1996 in order to protect an extensive system of over 300 caverns and sinkholes featuring rare karst landforms. In addition to these unusual geological formations, at this cave you can also see two underground streams, rim pools, shawls, and flowstone features. Take a guided tour to explore a natural world teeming with underground creatures, which have evolved some very strange features in order to survive in their dark surroundings. Adventurers can also hike through the lush forests of the national park surrounding this cave.
