Is a long drive in on unsealed road but is well worth the trip.

Easy walk from car park to entrance where have to negotiate some larger rocks to enter. May be difficult for some people. On the way in we spotted a large monitor lizard but no fresh water crocks to be seen anywhere. Was a nice walk across rocks and through water pools. The caverns are majestic and some do have bats just hanging around well above you head. We walked through many chambers and one old roof collapse area where we could feel the hot air coming down from outside. One we arrived at the other end of caverns we existing into a area where there is more pools. Yes, have to go back the same way to car park and remember where walked through the pools. Now remember, need to take a good torch as some areas are pitch black with no lighting. At this time of the year the water does come above your knees if you are tall. One hint, at pool that says water is deep there is a large white log on the LHS. Walk along the LHS of log against the rocks as this is much shallower unless wish to walk through deep water. Was great place to visit.

A visit to Tunnel Creek was part of our itinerary during a recent Kimberly trip. Unfortunately after a big wet season and traveling in May, there was too much water in the creek for us to fully explore it.
Would love to return one day and see the entire creek area but on this occasion can only say it was an average experience.

It is tricky climbing into the entrance cave but once in we were greeted by a freshwater croc resting on a rock. Being short, the water reached my chest in some parts, but it was safe and beautiful. We saw ancient paintings, live freshies and bats. There were plenty of beautiful cave formations. The exit at the other end was stunning and knowing it’s rich history really added to the experience.

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. Absolutely brilliant experience.

The tunnel is brilliant for those with an adventurous heart. We went in in daylight and negotiated the water and rocks without an incident but its great because one has to think it through and plan the route if there is no one else there to follow. The end of the tunnel opens out into a magical place at sunset. Interesting although unpleasant history of the tunnel.

Went with a guide but might have been too chicken without one as haven't done this sort of thing before.

Water levels were fine in mid June - deepest water crossing (the last crossing) was up to the upper thigh (saw other groups were advised to wear swimmers presumably in case water levels were much higher). Freshwater crocs in here don't usually cause problems. Would suggest wearing watershoes and bring a torch as some areas are really dark. Take your time as our shins almost bumped into a rock hidden by the water.

Such a great cave experience. I was a little apprehensive at first due to the things I had read but well worth a visit. There is a 20 m swim in very cool water in a dark cave but that’s the scariest bit. Make sure you have a head torch and a dry bag for the swim. Saw a few younger children so even they managed the swim

If you are heading West to East along the Gibb River road, then take the turnoff to the right towards Windjana Gorge which is 125km from Derby.

Head past Windjana Gorge (camp on the way back), and drive around 55km to Tunnel Creek National Park.

It is all a dirt road with a little corrugations and sand which will vary depending on the time of year you travel and when it was graded last. Depth of water through the cave will also vary at different times due to rainfall, but will always be a bit cool to cold, depending on your tolerance.

The 750 metre self guided walk through the cave, is one of the best things you will experience.
Be prepared to get wet up to your waist, take a torch, sturdy shoes for the wet.

So I don't repeat items like some of the reviews here, click on the below link to read up on all the information regarding this great spot.

Saw a flyer at the Windjana Gorge campground about guides from the local Bunuba people, and when we arrived at the parking area at Tunnel Creek they were sitting at the shelter at the car park. Our guide, a young man named Kenneth, showed us some areas at the beginning of the tunnel that were used for ochre preparation and spear sharpening; the shallowest paths through the creek (still about knee deep); rock art, bats and stalactites inside the tunnel; and rock art sites at either end of the tunnel. He explained the significance of the rock art and told us the story of Jandamarra, and along the way also shared much about his culture. Tunnel Creek is an experience not to be missed, but a local Aboriginal guide will make it a really memorable experience.

Tunnel Creek is situated on the Leopold Downs Road which is on the same road as Windjana Gorge. So a great time can be spent seeing these two greatly different features. The main experience here is to walk through a large water cave. It is only a short walk from the car park to the cave entrance and then the experience is on. You have to clamber over some rocks and get through a tight gap to get into the cave. While we were going through this stage we were lucky enough to see a Python snake crawling through the rocks.Then once in the cave you are in a very large chamber and the real experience starts. While walking through the cave you will be walking in water (depth depends on the amount of recent rainfall) While we were there it only just went above the knee. If not walking in the water then you are walking along side the water and this can be rocky in places. The tunnel is made up of two chambers as after walking for a while you come out into the daylight where the cave has collapsed at some stage and then you go into the next section to finally exit the cave to this densely vegetated area with a creek. While walking through the cave look out for the animal life. In the first chamber there were bats on the roof on the opposite side of the creek and there were fresh water crocodiles in the last pool before the exit of the cave. You can see the reflection of their eyes in the water. You need to have a torch and if you can get a cheap pair of reef shoes (Target sell them for about $12) they are good to wear in the water and they dry out so well. The whole experience took just over an hour to and hour and a half.
