Fireflies light up our forests and glowworms illuminate the caverns near Queen Mary Falls in Main Range National Park. This natural wonder only occurs for approximately one month every year, from late October to late November. The best time to see the fireflies is at dusk between 6pm and 8pm. For more information, contact the Warwick Visitor Information Centre.

Hand feed parrots at Queen Mary Falls Caravan Park and Cabins. One of the most enjoyable activities for those young and old is the daily hand feeding of the king parrots and crimson rosellas. They are so tame they will land on your hands to feed. Also available at the same location is the Twilight Native Animal Walk, where you are likely to see bandicoots, kangaroos and sugar gliders. You can also hand feed the friendly possums.
