The Glow worms in the Tomah/Berambing region are a lesser known attraction in the Blue Mountains. This is largely due to the inaccessibility of the site.
Thousands of spectacular glow worms have creates a colony in the Tomah/Berambing region. They are fascinating creatures in their own right, but even without any understanding of their lifecycle or the chemical processes that produce the light the sight of a colony of glow worms are quite poetic. Some have compared the sight of glow worms to illuminated undersea coral, others to the night sky. Really, all natural phenomena are unique.
Not for everybody, but those who do like this find they like it a lot. Katoomba is the home of Australian School of Mountaineering. As abseiling and mountaineering require considerable skill and substantial equipment the use of an instructor is mandatory.
