One of the most popular and famous tracks near Lithgow, the Glow Worm Tunnel Walk goes through a spectacular old railway tunnel. With thousands of glow worms along the sides and roof of the tunnel, a fascinating effect of the stars is produced. Remember, that it is necessary to be quiet so as not to disturb the glow worms. A torch is required - the tunnel is pretty long and it gets really dark in the middle. Let us begin by acknowledging the Wiradjuri people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
