Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Due to a landslide, access is not available via Wolgan Valley so the options are Glow worm tunnel road or Old Bells Line of road ( latter turnoff at Clarence near the Zog Zag railway station. It’s about a 30-40 minute drive from Clarence on dirt roads although these were in quite reasonable conditions apart from a few very small sections of potholes. A normal sedan can do it quite comfortably but a low slung sports car would struggle.
Glow worm tunnel road ends at a new car park and there is a well constructed flat path to the cave itself although there is a short section of stairs into and out of a small creek ( there is a bridge over the creek). The tunnel is part of the old Newnes railway and there is work in progress to extend the wide walkway inside the tunnel. The wide walkway goes in perhaps 150 metres before it narrows. The glow worms can be seen from the end of the walkway so there isn’t a need to go further unless you choose so. Take a good torch as it’s very dark in the tunnel.
Tip:
One of the best kept secrets is the Dry Canyon walking trail which is nearby. It’s not signposted but to find the trail starting point head back up Glow worm tunnel road through the first short tunnel and look for a small parking area on the right ( heading back in the direction to Lithgow). There is a low metal wire barrier to stop cars venturing further. The trail winds past rock pagodas ( hence the name pagoda track) for perhaps 1.5km before there is a bit of a scramble down a slope to the first slit dry canyon which has a fantastic micro climate. Once you are through the first slit canyon, head on for perhaps 150 metres to the second dry canyon which is quite different to the first. There are some blogs on the dry canyons which give detailed directions and it’s worth downloading those to save time heading down an incorrect trail. The final 3 photos are the entrance to Dry Canyon

As others have noted the drive up is probably the hard bit but if you have a 4wd you will have no problems.
Low clearance 2wd cars will find it difficult navigating through those pot holes.
After 30km of driving the unsealed road from Lithgow (and yes you will need to drive through a narrow cave!) you will reach a well maintained car park. It looks like they are doing some work here so I am sure the conditions will be even better.
The walk to the cave was very pleasant and can be done by even those with average fitness. When you reach the cave, be sure to watch where you are going as it is quite wet and slippery in there. So those with mobily issues in the cave may find it difficult to navigate. A good head lamp would be a good idea too. When everyone turns off their torches, that is when you can see the glowworms on the ceiling at the middle point of the cave.
Some worms are on the walls too so can you what they really look like.
A great experience but just make sure you are prepared for the drive .

Due to a landslide on Wolgan Gap, the Glow Worm Tunnel is presently not accessible via Wolgan Road. Access is only possible via Glowworm Tunnel Road from Lithgow and Bell Line of Road. Wolgan Road is expected to remain closed for most of 2023

We really wanted to do the loop walk from the Old Coach Road entrance in early July 2022. The road in was sealed until the last 200m or so but after a week of rain the creek you have to walk across to get to the track was about 30cm deep with very fast flowing water and half the track was closed due to a landslide. We decided crossing in the middle of winter wasn’t worth the risk of being knocked over so will have to come back another day. See photos below!

A pretty long walk, with decent climbs. You gotta be pretty fit to complete the hike. The tunnel itself is amazing. I didn't expect it to be this long... Inside it's complete darkness and there are sections where the ceiling looks like Milky Way shining with the worms. Was very wet when we were there, had to hop over a stream going through the length of the tunnel all the time, and we all got our feet soaked. Unfortunately, part of the loop walk was closed, so we had to backtrack, will come back to complete it for sure. Also, to get to the start of the walk you'll have to cross a stream, so be prepared to take your shoes off and carry little kids over...

We read mixed reviews regarding the drive in, some claiming 2WD will have no problems and some claiming 4WD only.
Well here is the current status as of 13 December 2021. We came in 2 cars via Glow Worm Tunnel Rd, a Mazda3 and a Raptor and found it quite sketchy for a majority of the drive in. POTHOLES GALORE.
It got to a point where the Mazda3 as well as another family in a Holden Commodore had to turn back because the road was just too uneven. Vehicles without sufficient clearance
Towards the end was a relatively smooth gravel road, however got narrow in some bits. Definitely go on a weekday to avoid getting backed up.
Today's weather was dry and quite sunny.
The hike itself was easy enough right up to the tunnel, just make sure you bring a flashlight and some sturdy shoes for a comfortable experience.

A hidden treasure well worth the drive for . A bit out of the way but it will be worth it. Drive along an amazing road complete with a train tunnel to drive thorough. Small hike to the glow worm tunnel. 750m of darkness and glow worms. Be sure to take a torch and be prepared to get wet feet

Stunning scenics either end of the tunnel especially at the Newnes end of the tunnel . The tunnel is quite long so take a decent torch as you dont get light on the middle . also a bit wet underfoot and uneven so take decent footwear . enjoyable and very different place.

Excited to come with hubby and young boys to see the glow worms. Information online is misleading and made us believe you could access the tunnel relatively easily in a 2WD. DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS. It is a 30km unsealed road full of pot holes! We got about 1-2 kms along the road and realised our Skoda station wagon wasn’t fit for purpose and turned around. There were a number of 4WDs on the road (carrying what looked like camping gear) and we had to keep pulling over so they could pass. Very pretty drive but don’t come unless you have a good 4WD!

The 40KM drive on unsealed roads was scary. Was afraid the car tyre could be punctured and we will be stranded in the middle of nowhere. After negotiating the deep trenches on the road, we were unsure if we should drive through the tunnel as it was so narrow. We backed up and waited and saw a few cars drive through. We cautiously followed and were relieved to see the end of the tunnel and the car park after that.
The walk from car park to tunnel is beautiful, however you have to negotiate a few steep steps and reach the glow worm tunnel. The floor of the tunnel as advised in the website is very uneven and covered with big boulders and considerable amount of water continuously flowing , and pitch dark.
We were able to see the glow worms, whenever the flash lights were dimmed by other tourists. I was more afraid of having a fall than enjoying the glow worms .
Would not recommend this for 60's or 70 year olds or anyone not very fit.
