“Excellent place for a walk/biking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2012

Amazing path of up to 10kms one way till u reach the tunnel. Its one of the best walkways in Wellington and would be really fun if you can go in groups as the path is quite flat and you can have loads of fun enroute. Once u finish this, I recommend u to go to H2O to unwind..

“Peaceful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2012

Tunnel Gully is one of those places that you see the sign for but usually keep driving. Don't! it is worth a look. Pack a picnic basket and spend a few hours. There are some nice trails and the old railway tunnels are interesting. They intrigued my entire family and while we kept him on his lead even our dog enjoyed the walks. this is lovely spot that has no road noise but is easily accessible.

“Part of the rail history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012

The old Rimutaka Rail line traversed the mountain range more than 60 yearsago and this marks some of the now abandoned track. There are some really good and accessible tracks into the forest here.

“Peace and Beauty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2012

The park is sheltered, and the bush is lovely. The old railway formation and tunnel bring back memories of the line that was closed (replaced by the Rimutaka Tunnel) in 1955. A great place for a picnic on a fine day. The energetic can hike up the hills; the less energetic can amble along the old railway and through the tunnel, or they can walk along many easy bush tracks near the car parks.
