Japanese Tunnel near Parkview [????- ]
I went out for a little “Walk-about” this afternoon around Jardine’s Lookout. As I was walking back down towards Parkview I spotted a small trail leading off to the side near the covered Water Reservoir next to the old Anti-Aircraft Battery. The trail went around the side of the hill behind where the BBQ site is for about 40m, along a fairly steep and slippery path. I noticed a big groove cut out of the hill and when I got closer it was clearly a blocked up Japanese tunnel. Where there is one tunnel, there are usually others, so I continued crashing through the undergrowth. Just a bit further on I found another big entrance, again blocked. I persevered and around the corner I found an open tunnel entrance. The tunnel leads into the hillside about 15m before turning left and away from the other two entrances. I did stick my head in and it appears to carry on, however I was on my own and I don’t like going into new tunnels on my own without anyone knowing. I’ll talk a mate into going into it with me in the coming days. I’ll post my findings. Excuse the low quality photos, I only had my phone on me, but you get the picture. I think the best way to get to them next time is by going to the very back of the BBQ pits site and head up to the right, about 20m up.
