- Rail Trail
This trail follows four connected disused mining tramways, one with a tunnel.
Last updated: 6 December 2022
Traffic management has changed on approach to this trail since the 2003 Tasmanian Rail Trail guide book was produced.
After driving past the golf course from Zeehan, you can no longer drive straight through the tunnel. You must turn left and drive down what was previously a one way road to access the new parking area at the southern end of the tunnel and come back the same way.
A line of bollards now separates the gravel car park from the tunnel and a neatly grassed picnic ground surrounding a plaque describing the history of mining in that area. A timber walkway leads you from the picnic ground, through the tunnel to the road at the northern end.
Part way along the car park access road is a track which lets you continue to Comstock by 4WD or bicycle, or on foot.
