Starting from the corner/intersection of Beech Road and Cunningham Avenue, Landsborough, this walk takes you through a historic tunnel via a straightforward track, exploring the diverse woodland of Dularcha National Park along the way. The Dularcha Railway Tunnel was built in 1890-1891 by T Jesser & Company, and was used during both the world wars for transporting injured soldiers. Also known as the North Coast Line No 1 : Mooloolah Tunnel, this heritage-listed tunnel is home to large-footed bats and blue/purple moths. Outside the tunnel, you’ll be surrounded by cabbage palm trees and some rainforest plants in different sections, leading to a diversity in wildlife. The nearly-flat and straight track makes this an interesting family-friendly trip. You can ride your mountain bike here as well. This walk can be turned into a return route and be reversed as well. Additionally , you can take a train for half of the walk from each direction and walk back to your car to avoid backtracking. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
