TOUR DESCRIPTION: 

A colony of magical Blue mountains Glow Worms thrive in a hidden canyon only a short distance from our retreat. Our fully guided night walk takes you right into the heart of our Glow Worm colony and offers a rare opportunity to observe some of nature’s very special light emitting creatures living in our own backyard. As you turn off the head torches and let your eyes adjust to the darkness,  more of these fascinating creatures begin to reveal themselves right before your eyes.

Our small personalised tours include an interactive information session, local stories and a history of how the Glow Worms were discovered in the Blue mountains. The tour walks down to the heart of the canyon and finally stops at the main viewing area. Here the tour group takes seats and is given sufficient "lights-out" time to observe the glow worms. Before returning back up the canyon to the carpark, each group memember is given a turn to climb up onto the viewing platform for an oppourtunity to view the Glow Worms up-close.

Limited, supervised photo opportunities will be provided with assistance from the tour guide.

If an assessment is made that the weather conditions are unsafe the Tour Guide will inform participants as early as possible that it has been cancelled.
