UPDATE 1 JULY 2018: THIS AREA IS NOW FENCED OFF WITH HOPES THE DECIMATED RARE GLOW WORM COLONY WILL RECOVER.
Not long ago I shot this video footage of the Helensburgh Railway Station Reserve which includes; Helensburgh’s 1st Railway Station, the 1st Helensburgh Tunnel, and the popular Metropolitan Tunnel 1st, (also known as the Glow Worm tunnel).
The day I visited the site was a pleasant Winters day in June with mostly sunny conditions. I deliberately didn’t add music or speak during the video as I wanted to capture ambient and natural sounds from the fauna and surrounds. As you will see in the video, there was a photo-shoot in the Metropolitan Tunnel that day. Hope you enjoy.

The first Helensburgh and Metropolitan Tunnels, including the remains of the former Helensburgh Station platform, are no longer in RailCorp ownership, and has been vested to the NSW Department of Lands.
