Glow Worm Dell

West Coast

Just minute`s walk from the road, this leafy canyon is home to spectacular glow worm displays, and the coolest thing is that it is free! There are a few interpretation boards that give you a bit more info in these little glowing critters. The dell can be found on the outskirts of Hokitika, on the lefthand side of the road as you come into the town from Greymouth. The path leading to the dell is unlit, but has handrails to guide you. You`re best off visiting at dusk, when it`s dark enough to see the worms, make sure you bring a torch to help you find your way. You`ll recognize the dell as soon as you reach it, you will see little blobs of light everywhere. For all you budding photographers out there, if you want pictures, bring a camera that can handle very low light conditions. Disable the flash. Photos with flash show nothing of the glowworms, and irritate other users of the dell, both human and insect.
