Amazing place! I recommend bringing gum boots or flip flops because everything is muddy and wet. Be ready to get dirty, but once you’re inside of the tunnel you will be able to see lots of glow worms. Totally worth it!

Not too far from Sydney and a great place during the week so you’ll pretty much have it all to yourself..the weekend of course being a lot busier and if you’re tying to get “that long exposure shot” with the water trickling down the side on a busy day without someone walking into frame you’ll be waiting a while. There are glow worms here but the influx of tourists has dramatically affected the colony negatively; to combat this the tunnel is shut for parts of the year to let the glow worms rejuvenate.

Very very muddy, need gumboots or at least the tall waterproof hiking shoes. Couldn’t go very far in as it was just thick mud

Pretty cool spot for photography. You can park just outside the entrance or a few metres down the road. If you go on a weekday there’s not much of a crowd. If it has been raining though, the tunnel and surrounding area can flood so there’s a chance that you can’t go into the tunnel.

Glow Tunnel at Helensburgh station. It is old Helensburgh station and tunnel. Very beauty that fully the natural environment. Very dark when you walk in the tunnel. It is very muddy and wet. If you want to the glowworm, you have to walk in deep. Please don’t forget to bring the torch and turn it off when you want to see the glowworm. Don’t use strong light because the light will be the effect on the glowworm. A great and mysterious place that I would like to recommend this place.

Beautiful tunnel would love to explore a bit further in and check out the glow worms. The train track goes in for five meters inside the tunnel then it is dirt. It rained the night before so it was muddy

Edit: The Tunnel has been fenced off and is open during daylight hours. Keep the glow worms in mind while visiting the tunnel, don’t shine bright lights at them, keep noise to a minimum, don’t use bug repellent & don’t set anything on fire in the tunnel or produce smoke. In the few times I’ve visited I’ve noticed fewer and fewer glow worms.

Visited the Old Helensburgh Station and the Tunnel today. The short walk along the rail tracks to the entrance is beautiful. Surrounded by lush green vegetation and the cool temperate atmosphere, it gives off the feeling that you are about to embark in one of Lara Croft’s Tomb Raider adventures. Once you have made your way inside tunnel, it takes a little navigation and some torch skills to advance through with out slipping. The walk inside the tunnel goes for about 100m before it gets covered in too much water. The inside resembles a sewer, with rubbish and grafitti. After about 10 mins of being inside, we were alone. We turned off our torch, stayed inside for another 10 mins to let our eyes adjust. Got to see a handful of glow worms.

I was surprised how much the glow worms really did light up. Good place to check out for a short hike. Be prepared to walk through mud you can only avoid it for so long then u have no choice to walk through it. But its all part of the experience.

Nice place, 2 tunnels (one fenced) and a slice of local history. Popular spot for professional photos. The southern tunnel does get quite wet, muddy and a bit slippery.
