  • Nice walk. Be careful if slippery. Bring gumboots or flip flops and a towel to dry your feet after. At the end of the tunnel turn your torch off to see the glow worms on the ceiling.
  • This was incredible, expect to wet your feet. I didn't get to the end of the tunnel, I kinda freaked out.
  • Some glow worms to be seen. Kind of a boring tunnel with a straight walk through.

  • Very cool walk. Bring sandals!
