Things to do
Dularcha National Park has three tracks for walking, mountain bike touring and horseriding and four tracks for walking and mountain bike touring.
Day-use area and toilet facilities are not provided in this small park but are available nearby in Landsborough and Mooloolah townships and in Glass House Mountains National Park.
Walking, horse riding and bike riding
For safety a give-way code applies:
- Mountain bikers give way to horseriders and walkers, and alert others when approaching them.
- Walkers give way to horseriders.
Use the track classification standards to choose tracks that suit your group’s ability and fitness.
Distance: 3km one-way. Distance to tunnel 900m one-way (from northern entrance) or 2.1km one-way (from southern entrance)
Details: Take this easy walk to the heritage-listed railway tunnel. Slow down as you enter the tunnel to allow your eyes time to adjust to the darkness—especially important for cyclists!
Look closely at the tunnel walls and you may find colourful moths, spiders and in wetter areas small ferns. Listen for large-footed myotis bats that seasonally roost here and avoid disturbing them by walking quietly through the tunnel.
Tunnel bypass track
Distance: 220m one-way
Details: This track passes over the ridge and is designed for visitors with horses that are uncomfortable in the tunnel confines. From this track you can also access the north-eastern section of Roses Circuit—slow down and take care where the tracks meet.
- This section of track is steep, uneven and slippery, especially after wet weather.
- Slow down and look out for other track users where the track meets the Roses circuit.
Roses circuit track
