Blue Mountains Glow Worm Tours operate short guided night tours into a nearby Glow Worm Colony. Purchasing a ticket though our website will reserve you a spot on your selected tour. Tickets will be emailed to your nominated email address after completing payment. Please bring either a digital or printed copy of your ticket to show the tour guide at the begining of the tour.


A colony of glow worms occupy 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!

Our small personalised tour includes an interactive fact session as you walk down into the heart of our private Glow Worm habitat. You will have plenty of time to experience up-close these exciting bio-luminescent creatures in an undisturbed natural environment.

Supervised photo opportunities will be provided with assistance from the tour guide.

The Glow Worm Tour will generally operate in the rain - infact Glow Worms like the rain and often produce a more exciting display in wet weather.

In the event of rain, please assume the tour is going ahead as planned and proceed to the starting point - the Wollemi Wilderness Tours Tour Guide will supply good quality rain jackets for each participant. 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.

IMPORTANT: In the event of bad weather do not assume the tour has been cancelled. Please ensure you proceed to the tour starting point on time.


Glow worms are a natural phenomenon and may be affected by adverse weather conditions. While there is no strong seasonal pattern, the Glow Worms can occassionally reduce the light output and overall numbers on display.
