Tunnel Creek National Park - Cities, Towns and Localities
Covering some 91 hectares, Tunnel Creek National Park is Western Australia's oldest cave system, and gained fame as the hideout used by the Aboriginal leader known as Jandamarra, who was also killed there in 1897.

Tunnel Creek is a unique formation created by waters from the creek cutting a 750 metre tunnel through the ancient Devonian Reef system. The tunnel is 15 metres wide and up to 12 metres high and offers visitors a great opportunity to walk through the tunnel to the other side. You will be wading through several permanent pools, see stalactites, as well as get the opportunity to catch a glimpse of bats, of which there are at least five species living in the caves, including ghost bats and fruit bats. Freshwater crocodiles are occasionally found in the pools.

Tunnel Creek is approximately 63 km from the main Derby-Fitzroy Crossing Road, 115 km from Fitzroy Crossing, 180 km from Derby and 30 km south-east of Windjana Gorge. From Fitzroy Crossing it will take about two and a half hours travel.

The best time to visit is between May and September, as the park is usually inaccessible during the wet season.
