Glow Worm Tunnel

Glow Worm Tunnel

Located within the World Heritage listed Wollemi National Park, the Glow Worm Tunnel area offers magnificent views of pagoda rock formations, extensive flora and a wide array of native wildlife including glow worms, kangaroos and wallabies. The walk into the tunnel follows a disused railway line, which once descended into the Newnes Valley, and was used to transport oil shale.

The highlight of a trip to the tunnel is the thousands of Glow Worms visible in the darkness of the tunnel. A torch is required for the tunnel, however, do not shine the light on the glow worms as they are sensitive to light and also to noise.
