When we turned our torches off in the Metropolian Tunnel (where a family used to have a mushroom farm) and once it had been pitch black for a few minutes, the walls of the tunnel came alive with glowworms. A wonderful way for active "oldies" to spend a Saturday morning. John is working up sessions and excursions on the abandoned railways of the state of NSW.
Bring . it . on!
