rainforest rail trail (burringbar train tunnel)

Whilst in Northern NSW today I took the opportunity to check out the disused train tunnel at Burringbar. It used to be used for the XPT service that ran from Murwillumbah to Sydney that was discontinued in 2004 (Kitty and I caught this train to Sydney in 1998 for Schoolies week).

There’s an unofficial ‘rail trail’ that starts at the beginning of Tunnel Road where you can walk 2.5km to the entrance to the 500m tunnel and then back again (if you wanted to skip the 5km walk you can drive along tunnel road to right near the entrance of the tunnel and jump the fence).
