What you'll do

You want to take a break and escape the city but avoiding the busy weekend crowds around the scenic hot spots of the Blue Mountains? Then follow us to a peaceful and idyllic part of the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, the Wollemi National Park with its tranquil Glow Worm Tunnel Track and an historic, 400 meter long railway tunnel lit by thousands of glow worms.

This track is a Grade 3 (not difficult) round walk of 10km, taking 4 hours to complete whereby the 320m elevation gain is an healthy exercise. It is a track for those who love hiking!

Enjoy unspoiled nature and learn from local Blue Mountains guides about the flora and fauna, geology and history of this gorgeous part of the World Heritage Area.

We love to share our excitement about carbon-free traveling and are offering this tour that includes a 175km round-trip from Wentworth Falls through the scenic Wolgan Valley in our new fully electrical Hyundai Kona Highlander (charged by 100% renewable energy) at present for only $ 170 per couple.
Please note: Our interpretive guided tour is being offered exclusively for the booking of two guests under the same booking party.

Meet us in Wentworth Falls, a 90min drive from Sydney or a relaxing two hours train ride from Central Station. If you stay in the Blue Mountains, it will be our pleasure to pick you up from your accommodation.
Other things to note
While this experience is our regular weekend tour, we can also provide it on a weekday on request.

Travel to the Blue Mountains by a 2-hours train ride on the Blue Mountains Line (leaving Central Station mostly from platform 2 to 8) to meet us at Wentworth Fall or drive up from Sydney in 75mins.

Hello from Wolfgang and Hedi. We are two local Blue Mountains hiking enthusiasts with a Parks Eco Pass license for guided hiking tours awarded by NPWS, EcoStar certified and accredited for Quality and Sustainable Tourism.

Did you know, there are 130 different species of orchid plants in the Blue Mountains? With orchids being only one species of a vast variety of plants being found in the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, there is so much more to explore and learn about the local flora, fauna, geology (Hedi has an MSc in Mineralogy) and also history of this place. We love to be your guides.

As supporters of the Australian Conservation Foundation, we make a donation to ACF for every hiking tour, we conduct.

Wolfgang and Hedi were indescribably amazing guides and companions. The connection we formed with them over the course of the day is something I'll value forever, perhaps even more than the walk itself. The walk itself was phenomenal, the views, the history of the land which can been seen by the differing trees and rock formations as well as easy-moderate level of the track all culminated into a must-have experience. Wolfgang was a great story teller and connected what we saw to the history of the Blue Mountains, and Hedi was a repository of knowledge on the local flora and geology. Even better, by using the electric car which was charged at home through a renewable energy provider, one can be at ease that they are enjoying nature without doing any harm to it! I cannot recommend the experience enough. Whether new to the mountains or experienced, give Hedi and Wolfgang a go :)

Wolfgang and Hedi are friendly people, the best part was walking through the wood. Nature at spring time is beautiful- I did some pretty pictures of gum trees, moss, wild flowers and water, we saw a great big black beetle. Glow worm tunnel looked amazing- like scattered stars or Milky way. Thank you very much for this experience!
