What to Expect

This is truly an extraordinary magical nighttime adventure.

 

Departing from Sydney, you'll travel by 4WD along the Greater Blue Mountains Drive to the Blue Mountains and Wollemi National Park. Here, tucked away in the lush fern forest, is a tunnel filled with the bioluminescent light from thousands of glowworms. It's like a starry night, but inside. 

 

Take the short 1-kilometre bushwalk along the track, being guided by the red light of your headlamp. The red light won't disturb the local wildlife or glow worms as much while still letting you see sufficiently to walk safely. Along the way, you'll have the chance to spot other nocturnal wildlife as a whole new world of animals awakens at night.

 

At the end of the trail, you'll find a 400-metre tunnel, initially built for railway use as part of the mining industry at Newnes. However, instead of trains, this tunnel is now home to the glow worms, which light up the dark with pinpricks of blue light. As beautiful as it looks, this pretty glow has a more sinister use, acting as a snare for insects for the glowworms to eat. 

 

The tunnel can be muddy and wet, with an uneven and slippery floor, so you do need to be confident on this kind of surface. Photos and noise should also be kept to a minimum to disturb this fragile habitat. 

 

Enjoy the convenience of round-trip private transportation and an experienced guide who'll teach you about bush tucker and general survival skills while you're out in the wilderness.

    Good things come in small packages, which is why the group sizes are small, allowing the Operator to remain flexible as they thread the way through communities without intimidating the locals. On most trips, you'll be part of an intimate group of 4–6 people, though the group sizes are on average 4 people.
