Muntapa Tunnel is Queensland’s longest straight railway tunnel at 287 metres. The disused tunnel is now home to a colony of bent winged bats. The tunnel was opened in 1913 and was closed in 1964. This is a great day drip from the caravan park, there is a toilet and picnic area so it’s a great place to rest and have a picnic. While you cannot walk all the way through the tunnel (there is a section in the middle closed off to protect the bats), you can walk in each end.
One end is down a flight of stairs – good quality new stairs.
The other end is a trail into the end of the tunnel where you can go in far enough to feel the change in temperature and need a torch. A great adventure for the kids!

Clovely Estate: In addition to amazing wine, this winery won silver at the 2023 London Spirits Competition for their Apinya Gin – not bad for a small batch craft gin!
Moffatdale Ridge: A family owned and operated vineyard producing wine and liquers. Their D’vine Restaurant showcases local produce, offering both platters and an a la carte menu.

Coomba Falls, located approximately 2km east of Maidenwell, is a natural beauty spot featuring granite cliffs and a deep natural swimming hole.
There are 152 well maintained steps down to the waterhole, it is well worth the walk – surrounded by a vast collection of grass trees the platform at the bottom is a great place for picnicing, swimming, birdwatching and photography. Oh and keep an eye out for the goat who loves clambering over the rocks.
