We were incredibly fortunate that after a week of rain resulting in slippery tracks, Kristie kindly offered to drive us up Newnes Plateau to access the Glow Worm Tunnel through the shorter 1km easy walk from a nearby car park. She perfectly timed the excursion, leaving early to

Beautiful hike and a nice length. The tunnel is amazing and the glow worms were literally like stars in a night sky. The tunnel is very dark and feels spooky, but so worth it!!

Hi Emma5b, Thank you for your kind review. We think your review may be for the Glow Worm Tunnel Trail (either from Wolgan Valley or from the Newnes Plateau) but that's OK we'll claim it. We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed the bushwalk/hike and that you look at glow worms the same way we do - literally like stars in the night sky. It is pretty amazing. If you are ever back in our beautiful region drop us a line. We'd love to be able to share with you even more of our special part of the world on our award winning guided walking tours. Kind regards, Kristie Kearney | Owner & Founder Wolgan Valley Eco Tours
