#1 - Glow Worm Tunnel and Pagoda Circuit Track
Wollemi National Park
easyYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarYellow StarGray Star(21)
Length: 9.0 km • Est. 3 h 8 m
Once you gain height the track levels out and you get up close and personal with the sandstone cliffs before they eventually merge into a canyon only 20 meters wide and shrouded in ferns. Soon after you enter the Glow Worm Tunnel where you need a light of some kind- but be careful to be quiet and use as little light as possible so as not to disturb the worms (they're actually larvae). When you reach the other end you can keep going and pick up the Pagoda Trail which takes you through about 3 kms of forest that has many species of birds. Eventually it goes between a gap and heads left until it meets up with the original trail and you descend to Newnes again. Take water and your camera. Show more

This is the shortest but hardest of the overnights walks from Newnes. It traverses rugged pagoda country, takes you past one of the highest cliffs in the Blue Mountains and offers spectacular views over the Wolgan and Capertee valleys and Newnes Plateau. Camping is on a number of level sites among the pagodas or inside one of many camping caves.Show more

PLESE NOTE: As of June 01, 2020, users have reported that this track is CLOSED due to bushfires. Please see the park's website for up to date information before visiting. The Glowworm Tunnel Track takes visitors through a historic tunnel that is lit by thousands of glowworms. Visitors are asked to keep the noise to a minimum because the glowworms are highly sensitive to sound. The tunnel is also very dark so it is recommended that hikers bring a headlamp, flashlight or torch. Wollemi National Park is also home to swamp wallabies, koalas, goannas and lyrebirds. Track hours are 9am to 4.30pm daily. Closed Christmas Day.Show more
