Great place to visit. We took our bikes and loved it. The tunnel track was fascinating. Didn't see any bats but it may be the wrong season.

You can park at the end of Rose Road (where the National Park gate is) and walk approx 450m to Tunnel. You can also park at the end of Paget Street.

Abandoned old rail tunnel. Great hidden find 500m from end of road. You can walk all the way through tunnel (approx. 200m).
