Summary

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.
