  • Area & Track History

    Back in the early 1900,This was the rail way line into Seddonville
    The rail was to move the coal and timber out of the Charming Creek Valley.
    It was quicker and cheaper to ship the coal from charming Creek coal mine by truck in to Seddonville then out by rail to the West coast.

Points of interest along the walk

In the map above, if you zoom in on the walk, you’ll see all the following track points and their location. Each point has photos along with a description about each one.

Point 1: Chasm Creek Tunnel

The car park is on your right, hop through the gate and follow the old rain way line.
The tunnel is 50m long so a torch will be handy.
Once through the tunnel you walk across the old rail bridge and that is that.
Who said there were glow worms in the tunnel, we saw nothing.
So unless you are driving out to the Northen end of the Charming creek coal mine it is not worth the 47km drive out from Westport
