Take the family on an adventure - use your imagination to make the experience light-hearted, educational or even scary!
The heritage listed Dularcha Tunnel is located within the northern section of the Tunnel Track (an easy 3km walk through the Dularcha National Park). The 93.5m tunnel, built in 1891, was part of the former North Coast railway line between Brisbane and Gympie.
The curve of the tunnel makes it quite dark inside. Little explorers can use a torch to guide their way - heightening the thrill of exploration. Observant visitors will discover a human-sized cranny in the wall of the tunnel. Resident bat colonies may also be seen, hiding in the crevices.
There are two other shared trails in the Dularcha National Park, enabling walkers, cyclists and horse riders to appreciate the park's natural and historic features.
To reduce the physical demands of the trail, arrange for car transportation to replace the return leg of the journey. Alternatively, begin the trail from the northern end (corner of Beech Road and Cunningham Avenue, Landsborough) and turn around after exploring the tunnel.
Can be accessed with an all-terrain pram.
