good little hike. We didn't go until the end of tunnel because it's writed close but still good to discover the first part. some glow worm in the tunnel, think to turn off your light sometimes and adapt your eyes few seconds :)

Nature tripsGreat!

Definitely need good footwear and a decent torch. some easier parts than others. the single shingle track towards the end is steep but the effort is so worth it. Went on a day that a storm was due to hit, so quite wet. A lovely walk.

the walk itself was fine, the end result a little disappointing. dont get me wrong you can go through the cave but it is blocked off at the end of the cave so you literally get to the end and then turn around again.

The trail is open, only at the very end of the tunnel there’s a sign saying the path is closed. There was a little stream on the ground of the tunnel after a day of heavy rain, but it was fine to walk in the water (feet got a little wet though). Other than that, a cool short hike and we saw glow worms at the very end of the tunnel!

Easy hike with gradual elevation changes along a river that is fun to explore on its own as well. The tunnel at the end of the trail is open to enter but is closed at the exit on the other side requiring you to exit the way you came in. Bring waterproof shoes and a flashlight of some kind for the tunnel as it used to be an aqueduct and a shallow pool of cold water covers most of the tunnel floor.

Small collection of glow worms in the tunnel which was cool. Waterproof boots recommended as water is ankle deep inside the tunnel. Can also go barefoot but rocks could cause discomfort

forget about the tunnel... we started the walk with our kids (7/9) by sunset, got wet feet in the tunnel as expected and found finally lots of glowworms and an possum in the forest on the way back

Wunderschöne Wanderung mit schöner Natur und viel Glühwürmchen-Action! Leider war der Ausgang des Tunnels geschlossen... Trotzdem empfehlenswert!

Nice walk, bring shoes that you're okay with getting wet. You have to go all the way to the end if you want to see lots of glow worms.

It's a little hike, but a fun one. Tunnel is fun and you get to see some light glow worm action. Bring sturdy footwear that you don't mind getting soaked. Tunnel has a stream running through it the entire time that is ankle deep.
