Trek for Glowworms

It’s not the world’s most adrenaline-pumping adventure, but happening upon a galaxy of glowworms twinkling like tiny blue lights in a pitch-black forest is nothing short of magical. Melba Gully, a dense rain forest within Great Otway National Park (about three hours from Melbourne), is home to a large colony of glowworms. Walking trails are clearly marked and free to wander. If you like what you see, come back in daylight hours: The Gully is a popular spot for bush walking, thanks to its enormous ferns and a 300-year-old tree blanketed in moss. parkstay.vic.gov.au —Celia Shatzman
