Tunnel Creek

by on Sep.11, 2019, under Life, Photography

Tunnel Creek is located in the Napier Range and required driving on a pretty sketchy corrugated dirt road to reach

The natural cave through which Tunnel Creek flows is the major attraction here

With a length of approximately 750m that runs underground and it one of the oldest cave systems in Western Australia. The reef was first exposed around 250 million years ago and the first cave systems began to form, the present cave systems were created about 20 million years ago

There are large pools of water on the floor of the cave in which freshwater crocodiles live

It’s a little disconcerting walking along in the dark wading through these pools of water and to suddenly come across this in the water in front of you 🙂

I saw about half a dozen crocodiles on my way through the tunnel system
