Trip Planner: South Pacific / New Zealand / South Island / Otago Region / Dunedin / Tunnel Beach Track
Discover the wild and isolated beauty of Tunnel Beach Track, carved by the sea from the surrounding sandstone cliffs. Descend the winding track, starting 150 m (490 ft) above sea level and passing through the sandstone itself, and find yourself surrounded by sheer cliffs, rock arches, and caves beaten for ages by the relentless sea. Commissioned in the 1870s by a local politician, the tunnel allows visitors to use the otherwise inaccessible beach. Walk with care and wear shoes suitable for steep and slipery terrain.
