Getting there

From Samford Village travel north along Main Street and then Mount Samson Rd towards Dayboro.  Turn left into Gibbons Rd and then right onto Currawong Rd. Carry on straight on Currawong Rd - don't take the turn when the road veers left. The track begins just before the turning circle at the end of Currawong Rd, on the left hand side beside some cycle trail signage. Walk up the bank and there are two tracks at right angles.  Take the one that heads off to the right.

Route/Trail notes

This is a nice straight mostly level track following where the train line once was. There is nothing to show of its history until the end where you come to the tunnel.  The tunnel is home to bats which are studied by UQ and is blocked off by a large grate. There is only one gully to cross and the track is grassy.


No cost.

Heritage walk. Peaceful. Cleared trail. Muddy before the tunnel. No padlock today. Made it a loop by returning via Cooroora Cres and Pinbarren Pl. Next to no traffic.

Easy walk.

A straight walk in a very pleasant country setting to the old rail tunnel. I've updated the instructions to the walk as some of the road names were inaccurate and following the previous instructions would have taken you on to private property!

very short flat walk but nice forest and you can take your dog which is an added bonus.

Nice easy walk. It's a bit disappointing not to be able to go inside the cave but understandable.
