    We entered the trail from the wolgan road end. No problem driving a sedan here. Drive past the One and Only Wolgan Valley resort and you hit the clearing for the entrance to the glow worm tunnel trail...  more »

  • Long drive into the glow worm tunnels as the ~30km unsealed road has big potholes. In my 2wd wagon, we averaged under 30km/hr. There's little signage but towards the end, there's a national park sign saying glowworm tunnel carpark is 3km ahead but it's actually 6.5km. you'll have to drive through a tunnel in the road as well. The bushwalk is about 30 min mostly level but it does involve some steep stairs at some points. I liked the walk more than the glow worm tunnel but the whole experience is memorable. Bring a torch or phone with a torch for the tunnel. Would also be good to have waterproof walking shoes if you have it the tunnel is quite wet but still possible to navigate with sneakers.
  • Stunning reward to a long journey. Bring a torch. Nice a cool and wet inside.
  • A good family day out lots of fun bushwalking and for driving all because extreme or not
  • Bad dirt road makes the driving harder and longer. Strongly advice to drive a high suspension car there. The view is worth and stunning.
  • Road getting here is a dirt one with lots of holes. Once here its a great place to take your time and have your eyes adjust to the dark. Bring a torch too. Come early to avoid the crowds.
