Entrance to the tunnel

An inspiring place to visit. If you go to the end of the tunnel it’s about a 3km round trip. When you are in the tunnel it’s like looking up at the stars at night. The funny thing is that we passed a couple of guys who ran through with torches and they told us that they did not see any worms. Be quiet, let your eyes adjust and be patient and the whole tunnel is amazing. You start to see them everywhere. The other end of the tunnel is like an ancient rainforest out of the dinosaur ages. You need a torch each and not to bright is best. It is easy to find as it is well sign posted from Lithgow. The dirt road is pretty good in the dry and just take your normal car. We stayed at the zig zag motel and it was also beautifull , clean and warm. You could have driven up from Sydney and then back again in the arvo but I am a bit old for that and like to enjoy things these days. In the evening we drove up to Hassans Walls Lookout which is the highest lookout in the Blue Mountains. Its about 3km just past the Coles shopping centre in the middle of Lithgow
Summary from Lithgow tourism website:
400 metres in length. Originally constructed for railway line to Newnes oil shale works, now taken over by glow worms. Just over 30 kilometres from Lithgow or Clarence through Newnes Plateau. Excellent bushwalks through Newnes and Wollemi National Park. Good walking shoes and a torch are required for the walk through the tunnel.
