Tunnel Creek National Park is a national park in the Kimberley region of Western Australia, 1,845 kilometres (1,146 mi) northeast of Perth and 390 km (240 mi) east of Broome. The natural cave through which Tunnel Creek flows is a major attraction of the park.

Many Aboriginal rock paintings and speleothems are present in the cave decorating the walls. The cave was the hideout of the Aboriginal warrior, Jandamarra who was killed outside the entrance of the cave in 1897. It is part of the Balili (Devonian Reef) Conservation Park.

  • This was a highlight of my visit to the Kimberley. It was the last day of the Kimberley Wild 5 day expedition.  more »
  • We visited as a part of the Kimberley Wild Tours daytrip. Tunnel Creek was the highlight, exploring the 2k round trip of the tunnel, wading through the water and seeing freshwater crocs in there...  more »
  • Impressive but prepare for knee deep wading, rock scrambles and take a torch. Free admission and parking. A couple of water crossings on rough road 350 need good ground clearance but worth the trip.
  • Stunning experience. As the walk through the cave is always different each season, don't rely on internet information to much and maybe ask the people in the nearest roadhouse. Obviously bring a torch, but turn it off on some point to experience the atmosphere. And definitely read about the aboriginal warrior that died there. Oh, and if you are early, you might see the freshwater crocodiles in the water.
