Approach

Park as for ACRA wall then walk back down the road 20 metres then down a little path on the right onto the railway. Go in easterly direction along the railway then through the tunnel (if a train comes press flat against the side, apparently its safe but absolutely terrifying!). When you exit the tunnel, the EAST END is found on the left after crossing another railway line coming out of a 461 m tunnel.
