Lithgow glow worm tunnel
So arrived yesterday, and today in the country, love it. But sadly we were out Lithgow way for a funeral, but as it was school holidays, we turned it into a little trip for the kids as well. The dark space in the middle of those ferns is the entrance to the tunnel, its a big tunnel ( big enough for a train )it has just become very overgrown with these lush ferns leading to the entrance inside the tunnel, and yes, we saw lots and lots of glow worms, but just could not capture it on camera. I t was pretty spectacular that's 3 kids, one with a tiny torch, and the other two lit up, but alas, no glow worms captured light at the other end of the tunnel
again, very lush on the other side, feels like we arrived in the " lost Land "
Jacqui and Evan tunred back to the car, while the girls and I continue on exploring very lush out here walking along the track, so much dampness in the air ,even though it is a blue sky day. Would be nice to come back one day on a hot summer day crossing little creek on a tree branch the entrance to the tunnel on our return journey
the girls at the entrance
at the entrance still but this time, me inside looking out after 5 min in the dark, we arrived back at the start of the tunnel made it. Lithgow's Glow worm tunnel, well worth a visit, bring a torch, but not a big powerfull one, small one will do, let your eyes adjust to the darkness, and you will see thouands of glow worms
