Above the Glow Worm Tunnel - 26 June 2016

UBMBC

Walk from the Glow Worm Tunnel Car Park along the old railway line and through the Glow Worm Tunnel.

About 150 metres past the Tunnel, climb up through the cliffs to the ledges above and traverse back to a spot just above the Glow Worm Tunnel to see the huge stone walls built to stop debris falling onto the railway line.

Climb up to the terraces at the bottom of the main cliff line and traverse generally north, exploring the terraces in Tunnel Terrace Gorge. Leave the gorge, climbing a long, deep slot that goes all the way to the top of the cliffs.

After lunch, explore the Pagodas on the eastern side of the gorge before joining the Pagoda Track and heading back to the car park.
