Experience one of the most fascinating tours in the Blue Mountains

Join a small, personal tour group and embark on a nocturnal adventure into a world of glowing lights. Walking through the bush, feel the excitement build as first glimpses of the Glow Worms can be spotted through the trees.

Climb down to the bottom of an ancient sandstone canyon and follow its twists and turns to the main Glow Worm viewing area. In this natural amphitheatre, sit and wait in silence as thousands of Glow Worms begin to appear like stars around you.

Listen to your experienced guide recount stories of the early colonial era sightings of Glow Worms in the Blue Mountains. Learn all about Glow Worms, their life-cycles and interesting behaviours during an interactive biology lesson.

Ask your own questions to discover the truly bizarre and unique details - including HOW and WHY they produce light.


Get up close - really close - on our purpose-built viewing platform

Positioned underneath a densely populated glow worm overhang, our custom-built viewing platform allows you and your friends to climb up for a very personal experience with the Glow Worms!

No other tour or in Australia lets you get so close to Glow Worms in their natural habitat. Leaning in only inches away, watch the intricate and sticky Glow Worm webs dangling down from the rocks.

If you're lucky you might see a Glow Worm wriggling back and forth in its web! Up this close you will be surprised at how many more Glow Worms are visible – and how bright they are!

"Glorious Glow Worms"

A truely magically experience. Jochen was a fantastic tour guide. It was like a natural theme park ride full of intrigue and jam packed with facts and stories. Words can't describe the glow worms themselves... an experience not to be missed.

"A wealth of knowledge! Would highly recommend"

"...My friends and I had a good time! The glow worms looked beautiful last night; especially as we sat in the canopy, surrounded by them. Tom has a wealth of knowledge! He is passionate, personable and was attentive to everyone in the group. Would highly recommend!

"Nothing quite like it"

"Went up to the Blue Mountains to celebrate 1st year of marriage and we chose to spent the one night we were there going to see the glow worms. It was the best decision we have ever made...The view from the bottom of the valley was outstanding and the highlight of our trip. I would go to the mountains again just to reexperience the glow worms. We also got up close and had a look at their webs. I highly reccomend this experience! Book in advance if possible because some sessions book out fast."

We started off with a short night hike, with provided head lamps. We loved Jochen's passion and knowledge about the glow worms. It was truly magical, the closest I can come to describing it, is laying in a field at night with no lights anywhere and then the stars start to come out. Nature at its best! So if you love learning new things, seeing things that can only be seen in NZ and AUS, can use a little magic in your life go see the glow worms.

An absolutely fantastic tour. A great find for is. Jochen was a wonderful guide. He was honest and really knowledgable. The walk down is lovely, and on the way back we even got a little astronomy knowledge! The glow worms are wonderful considering they're only recently found and mostly untouched. We'll definitely be back to see some fireflies in December too. Thanks for a great tour!
