Wat je gaat doen

An unforgettable, educational experience visiting the unique glow worms after a short walk through World Heritage listed forest and rainforest. We will meet at sunset, spending a little time introducing ourselves and safety briefing.
Then as the stars begin to appear, with the use of torches, we will begin our 20 minute walk to the overhanging cave and waterfall, with the possibility of seeing our amazing nocturnal wildlife. Possums, gliders, owls and bats to name just a few. Another truly amazing encounter, only within the first 3 weeks of summer is the chance of fireflies. We will spend 30 minutes to an hour in the overhang, behind the waterfall learning about these incredible glowing larvae and why they glow.
The track is mostly in good condition, though there are some stairs and eroded sections, therefore a medium fitness level is required.
Glow worms are extremely sensitive to light and sound so we will ask our clients to respect this and there will be a 5 minute educational talk around this before entering the cave. Smoking is strictly prohibited on this tour. We recommend bringing your own torches, though we can supply if needed.
Minimal impact is very high on our list of priorities and instructions will be given on how to achieve this. We ask our clients to adhere to these rules.
Start times will need to vary.

Born in the Blue Mountains, fully qualified and guiding clients for over 20 years. The last 11 years have been with the National Parks and Wildlife Service, introducing 1000's of clients to this incredibly special and unique natural wonderland I live in. I have an extensive knowledge base on all Blue Mountains topics, with a number of television appearances to highlight this. To say I am passionate about nature would be an understatement and I truly love sharing this with others. I have been bushwalking, climbing, canyoning, abseiling, mountain biking and camping in the Blue Mountains from as early as I can remember. I genuinely look forward to sharing my skills and knowledge and hosting you on this unique tour.
My partner Dyan is Chilean and a Spanish teacher / translator, we welcome any Spanish speaking clients on our tour.

This was an incredible experience. Jamie is a great, funny and friendly host who knows so much about everything you will pass in the forest leading up to the worms. He also takes amazing photos in the cave. The worms themselves were beautiful and plentiful. Amazing experience all round

Your bushland education starts here! We went expecting to see glow worms obviously but along the way learnt things about the bush that we didnt know despite living around it our whole life...things such as swamp sponge, slugs, edible plants, slugs, stars, spiders and slugs...yes Jamie is very enthusiastic about slugs haha. Very funny guide and his love of nature shone through the tour. As for the stars of the tour...the glow worms and their cave was magical and outshone the actual stars which were spectacular being a clear winter night. It was a surreal experience being able to see by the light of such tiny creatures.
