South Coast Rail Trail and Ernest Jtn Tunnel is a 0.75km, grade 3 One Way hike located in South East Queensland Queensland. The hike should take approximately 30 mins to complete.
The former Southport railway line branched off the main line to Tweed Heads at a station called Ernest Junction just South of the tunell.
Parts of this former line are accessible on foot. These sections are mainly west of the Parklands Drive/Smith St intersection.
The tunnel itself is curved, preventing one end from being seen from the other and has been described as ‘spooky’.
