Dunedin's historic landmark Tunnel Beach. Tunnel Beach is along the Dunedin to Brighton coastal road. About 2km after leaving the Dunedin area, look for a sign directing you down a side road to the start of the Tunnel Beach walking trail.
The walkway to Tunnel Beach, is spectacular and strikingly different. Here you will find sea-carved sandstone cliffs, rock arches and caves just 15 minutes walk from the road.
The one hour return walk takes you through a tunnel carved through the rock then down to the beach - itís best to do this expedition at low tide.
The tunnel was built by John Cargill to allow him private access to the beach, making it a great place for a family picnic in a secluded area.
Cagills daughter drowned there on her 16th birthday and Cargill never visited the beach again.
Look out for the small fossils in the spectacular sandstone cliffs. A place visited by locals and tourists across private land, open with the permission of the owner.
Weesue taking a photo of Margie and Lori while they were waving to me on the cliffs above. See the photos weesue took of Margie and Lori in her series of our visit to the beach.

Great capture of the immense cliffs and how small people look there.

That might be an idea. We'll work on it, ok?
