My husband and I took our three year old twins through the tunnel. We didn't join a tour group but just did the walk on our own. Thankfully we had excellent head lamps as it was really dark. To be honest, I was a bit scared going in but had to do my best not to show it or the... More

As the hideout of famous Aboriginal resistance fighter, Jandamarra, this place seems to have a certain presence. Tunnel Creek is very cool and dark (bring a torch) and you'll probably have to wade through water in places. Can be a bit tricky to climb over the rocks at the entrance, but entirely doable. Windjana Gorge is also very beautiful, and... More

A must visit place. Walk through the tunnel, through parts of the river with small fresh water crocs hiding in the water. It was a very good morning spent here.

We did the drive to Tunnel Creek National Park then on to Windjana Gorge where we overnighted (see my other review for Windjana). The cave is a lot of fun, bring a flashlight though and prepare to get a bit wet and most likely you will have this place to yourself. It doesn’t take long to get through maybe 45-60... More

34 outside a lovely cool 20 inside the tunnel. It is a little bit of a clamber to get over the rock fall at the mouth of the tunnel so wear shoes. Depending on the time of year you will need to walk through water (up to knee height in July) and need a torch (total darkness at 2 spots).... More

Did the drive from Fitzroy Crossing combining it with visit to Windjana Gorge easy to do both on same day. Entrance to cave is not clearly mark, just need to scramble over the rocks until you can stand inside the tunnel cave area, most importantly have a very good torch.

Apart from footprints there are none of the tell-tale signs that this is a popular attraction. The entrance to the cave, is over and around fallen rocks that requires a degree of agility that makes it inaccessible to anyone with mobility issues. Once inside, visitors need to wade through water, immediately and at several other points. For this reason, don't... More

this is a 750 metre long, 30 to 40 metre wide cave with a stream running through it. Entrance is a bit of a scramble but once over 20 metres of rocks the rest is easy going. When we went through the water was up to mid calf's in 2 or 3 places, the majority of the walk was over... More

This 750m cave system with secret caves has an interesting history as told by our 4WD tour guide Adam, Jandamarra the legendary Aboriginal Freedom fighter who used the tunnel as a hideout in the late 1800's. There is a movie produced in 2011 called Jandamarra's War based on this legend. A torch and closed in old jogging shoes are needed... More

Definitely bring pair of old shoes that you don't mind getting wet. Thongs are not a good idea and nether is going bare-foot. There is a little bit of climbing over some boulders/rocks at the start, but then it gets easier, so if your mobility is impaired, just get some help as it then gets easier! A good torch will...
