A level of physicality to the Underworld Rafting and the GlowWorm Cave adventures. If you are confident at walking on uneven surfaces unaided and crouching down at some points this adventure is suitable for you. No tight squeezes, just a slight bend to get around a few corners and through a couple of passages. Underworld Rafting has a strict age limit of 10 years or older. Any age is okay for the GlowWorm Cave Tour if they are able to walk unassisted uneven surfaces for 1-2 hours. Please note that back/front packs and strollers for infants are not appropriate for these cave adventures.
