The Mystery Creek Cave Trail is in the World Heritage Area. It’s well marked and follows the routeof a tramway to the remains of a limestone quarry and to the entrance of the Mystery Creek Cave, part of the Ida Bay Caves. To reach the start of the trail, turn right about 1km from Ida Bay Railway station into the South Lune Road (unsealed). After 4km turn left. The road ends at a car park. Start the trail beside the information shelter. The rail trail is the first section of a walking route into the Southern Ranges via Moonlight Ridge to Mount La Perouse. A visit to the trail can be combined with a ride on the Ida Bay Railway. The railway still operates on the lower section of the tramway which carried stone from the quarry to the nearby harbour.
Stream water levels can make it unsafe to explore the cave.
