Where can I see glowworms near Queenstown?

Te Anau is home to some stunning caves that are home to lots of amazing glowworms!

This underground world is astonish and is still being carved out by the force of the river that flows through it. The result is a twisting network of limestone passages filled with sculpted rock, whirlpools and a roaring underground waterfall. Deep inside the caves, beyond the roar of the water, you will be taken by small boat into a silent hidden grotto inhabited by hundreds of glowworms, unique to New Zealand. In the subterranean darkness, they produce a glittering display that is nothing short of extraordinary.
