Rediscovering Nature’s Wonders: Wolgan Valley Eco Tours Reopens After Landslip Closure

By | February 15, 2024

In the heart of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, Wolgan Valley Eco Tours has been a beacon for eco-conscious travellers seeking an immersive experience. Located in the spectacular Wolgan Valley, surrounded by dramatic sandstone escarpments, this ecotourism gem has recently emerged from a 12-month hiatus caused by a major landslip at Wolgan Gap, which temporarily isolated the vibrant community of Wolgan Valley. With owner Kristie Kearney at the helm, Wolgan Valley Eco Tours is set to open its doors once again, promising a renewed focus on providing unparalleled encounters with nature.


Owner Kristie Kearney expresses her enthusiasm for the reopening, stating, “It has been a challenging period for our business and our community of Wolgan Valley. We are excited to welcome back guests to experience the magic of our unique landscape and contribute to the conservation efforts that are vital for the sustainability of this precious environment.” From late November, Wolgan Valley Eco Tours will offer its popular early morning Wolgan Valley Bird Watching tour and evening Wollemi Twilight Wildlife Walk, with the full day Wonders of Wollemi and Gardens of Stone tour and the Glow Worm Tunnel Hike returning in mid-2024 coinciding with the reopening of the Glow Worm Tunnel Trail following major track upgrades.

Wolgan Valley Eco Tours prides itself on offering unforgettable experiences that showcase the rich biodiversity of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area. From mesmerizing nocturnal wildlife encounters with wallabies, gliders, and owls to the enchanting glow of the Blue Mountains’ glow worm, the best way to explore this World Heritage Area is on foot. The journey takes you through the Wollemi and Gardens of Stone region, unveiling fern-filled canyons, ancient rock pagodas, and breathtaking escarpment views.

But it’s not just about the awe-inspiring scenery. Wolgan Valley Eco Tours invites visitors to delve into the history, ecology, flora, and fauna, and geology that make this landscape so unique. Guided walks provide a deep understanding of the area while contributing to wildlife conservation and research. Guests can partake in citizen science surveying of the world’s largest burrowing mammal, the Bare-nosed Wombat, or join efforts to protect the threatened Regent Honeyeater and Glossy Black-cockatoo in Wolgan Valley’s Wollemi National Park and Gardens of Stone State Conservation Area.

“Our passionate local guides, combined with award-winning guided walks, guarantee our guests a memorable experience,” assures Kearney. “We take pride in offering a less crowded and more intimate exploration of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, allowing guests to reconnect with nature while making a positive impact on the environment and local communities.”
