Starting from the car park at the end of Glow Worm Tunnel Road, Newnes Plateau, this walk takes you on a circuit around the Wolgan Valley section of Wollemi National Park via the Glow Worm Tunnel Track, Old Coach Road and the Pagoda Track. This moderately challenging loop winds its way around the southwestern section of Wollemi National Park, above the Wolgan Valley, passing through lush rainforests, tree fern gullies and impressive rock formations, offering panoramic valley views along the way. The main highlight is the Glow Worm Tunnel, a 400m-long former railway tunnel inhabited by thousands of bioluminescent glow worms, which are highly sensitive to habitat disturbance and best seen in the curved tunnel's midsection. The walk begins along the Glow Worm Tunnel Track, crossing a footbridge over Tunnel Creek before reaching a junction with the Pagoda Track, then follows the creek to the Glow Worm Tunnel. After emerging from the tunnel, the track enters a rainforest section surrounded by tree ferns and high cliff walls, then veers away from the creek, offering sweeping views across the Wolgan Valley. Eventually, the track joins the Old Coach Road, climbing gently through dry eucalypt forest along the cliffside, then continues along the Pagoda Track before returning to the car park. This loop consists of wide and narrow walking trails and fire tracks, with uneven natural surfaces, compacted natural surfaces, creek crossings, short steep hills and steps. Suitable for moderate fitness levels. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
