  • A beautiful place with shinny glow worm in the very end of the tunnel. They looks like galaxy all together. They are so shinny that even my phone can capture their light. Tips: 1. Prepare something to protect the surface of your shoes like a plastic bag since it’s very muddy and slippery inside. 2. If you have a professional camera, I recommend you to bring it with you. Even though your phone can capture the light they emitted, I think the light is still not enough for your phone, a better camera and good photography skill can help you capture much more details. (You will be amazed). 3. Go there with your friends. Inside is very dark. 4. The deeper you go, the more glow worm you can see with your eyes. Very end is too muddy, so I stoped and started going back.
  • Very cool and hidden away. Its sad though that someone has stolen the old Helensburgh sign. Suggest wearing old shoes and bring a flashlight as it can get muddy. The glow worms inside are worth the look but very hard to take photos of with a phone camera .
