What you'll do

Take a break and escape the city while avoiding busy weekend crowds around the scenic hot spots of the Blue Mountains.

Enjoy a scenic 175km round-trip from Wentworth Falls through the spectacular Wolgan Valley in our new fully electrical Hyundai Kona Highlander (charged by 100% renewable energy) to a peaceful and idyllic part of the Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, the Wollemi National Park

Hike on the tranquil Glow Worm Tunnel Track and reach an historic, 400 meter long railway tunnel built in the early 1900s lit by shimmering glow worms in the black dark middle section.

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

Experience 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.

Meet us at Wentworth Falls (ample parking) in the upper Blue Mountains, 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.

Due to current Covid restrictions, adults joining this tour need to be fully vaxxed.

Excellent experience! Our hosts were extremely lovely and knowledgeable. The walk was picturesque and the glow worm tunnel very interesting. It was also a fantastic bonus to experience an electric car as well. Would definitely recommend!!

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 :)
