|Lapstone train tunnel walk|
Although the train tunnel is closed to the public, this short walk does give you a view of the eastern (bricked up) entrance of the tunnel. The first half of the walk follows the sandstone cuttings where the train once went. For the second half of the walk to the tunnel, you walk on the Northern side of the cutting, giving you a view into the man-made gully. (open in app)
