Our 2nd great grandfather Irishman Patrick Kenny and his son William mined here, and gave their address as Tunnel Terrace in the electoral rolls from about 1875. It was also Patrick's address on his death in 1907. The family is buried in the Old Stafford Cemetery nearby. An atmospheric walk which we really enjoyed, but it must have been pretty grim living conditions for those gold miners.
Great place to stay we really enjoyed the walk . As we stayed at a lot of doc sites this summer we notice alot of tourists dont pay any camp fees, its about time something was done to enforce this. Would be a shame for doc to close them down.
Like a little fary take forest - moss has grown everywhere. It made us feel very at peace.
Walk takes about 15-20min
What an unexpected delight. From the car park you go through a tunnel and come out in a different world, walking though the thick forest seemingly cut off from the rest of the world. The path takes you in a loop that ends up at another tunnel back on to the road (about 5 mins walk from the carpark/start).
Three tunnels on a loop-bushwalk (20min) with amazing diversity on such a short walk. It's a little precious hobbittrail. Easy pathway with rocks, wood, slighty muddy. You either return at the end or walk 100 meters back to the carpark. Challenge: Find the exit to the second tunnel on this road. Best part: no tourists. Worth the detour.
Really nice track, a little bit short but nice and uncrowded. Would come again
September 2017... a great short walk through beautiful nature and so many many different green tones... a sweet Must Do in this area!!!
Really awesome short walk, it seems forgotten by all other people and covered in moss! you start and finish in the man-made tunnels. If you take a torch, you can see the marks from where it was mined. Would be even better if the DOC put some information about the area.
Very Nice shorts Walk in old rainforest like Wood. We loved that it started and ended in old golddigger tunnels.
Nearby to the nice DOC campground. Great little loop walk that nobody seems to know about--bring a headlamp though...and water sandals are best for the wet tunnels.
Fantastic short walk through amazing tunnels built by the gold miners. Really great family walk, perhaps take a torch to appreciate feat.
