Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Mum, Dad & I came out to Mooloolah for a day trip and did the walk to the old railway tunnel. It’s a short easy walk through eucalypt forest (one way about 1km) and when we got to the tunnel we used torches to spot the large-footed myotis bats up in the roof of the tunnel. It had rained and it was a bit muddy on the track & there was horse poo (the track is used for horse riding) so take old shoes. You can keep walking further along the track but we turned back at the tunnel. The history here is interesting and the tunnel dates back to 1891.

Afterwards we had morning tea in the park in town (thermos coffee with biscuits) and got some food at Cafe Mooloolah, then had a walk through the Maroochy botanic gardens near Forest Glen. It was a jolly good day out!

This hidden gem is not even known to all locals! We usually start walking at the Mooloolah end down past the IGA and towards the left. There is a council board showing you the walk and what to see. It travels along the old Rail line until you get to Landsborough and on the way you go through the Old Rail Tunnel which is pretty dark inside and you will probably see bats! It has a fair bit of shade as you walk with trees all around you though the ground is rough at times- not suited to a wheelchair but a pram will make most of it ok. You will usually be the only ones in there so enjoy the peace and quiet which gets interrupted by passing trains on the current line right next to you!

Found this National Park when trying to find new walking paths. There are several trails to chose from. This time we did the trail through the old railway tunnel. The trail is well marked and lots of good shady trees making it a pleasant walk on a hot day.

Took the kids out this particular morning. We entered from the Mooloolah side to reach the tunnel as our kids are quite young.
Plenty of place to park, and not too busy as we're the early birds.
A short stroll and the kids loved checking out the tunnel. It was after some rain, and the tracks weren't boggy so a great morning to be had.

An amazing National Park right on our doorstep with well marked trails for both walking and MTB’ing. Good range of tracks for all levels of ability...riding through the forest or right alongside Ewan Maddock Dam...great photo opportunities as well. A huge bonus is the swimming area at the Mooloolah Valley Road entrance...perfect for a dip and watching the sun set...

This is a nice relaxing walk with history to entertain the mind. The tunnel track is not an intense track which is good for most fitness levels and for the kids to have a run without much risk. You can raise the anti and do the loop track for those with more time and a reasonable level of fitness.

Take the nozzle spray during. The warmer months.

Recommended walk for all.

The walk was to have a look at the Old Railway Tunnel. Very interesting and it makes you think about old times. We approached the walk from the Mooloola side. You walk about 900 m from the car park and the Tunnel is there. The Tunnel itself is 90 m. The Tunnel has a nice echo!!!! A Torch or headlight advisable. When it was raining heavily you might want to give it a miss! Muddy! We walked another 2 km and came back. The forest very interesting and you walk parallel to the existing Railway line. Bring Insect Spray and wear a hat - parts of the walk sunny! Water as well! A very interesting experience! Approx. 80 minutes "ADVENTURE" - worth it!

We did Roses circuit which takes about 3 1/2 hours. The track is mainly on dirt roads in natural Australian bush. It is moderately hilly and good exercise.

There are quite a few old and new horse poos to navigate around.

In summary it is a pleasant place to walk without being particularly exciting.
