Explore Selwyn: Coalgate to Glentunnel

Current location in the site

The newly developed Glentunnel to Coalgate walkway/cycleway connects these two small, rural townships which lie near the Malvern Hills.

The path between the townships is two kilometres long and is flat. It’s an easy bike ride or walk for the whole family which is suitable for buggies, young cyclists or wheelchairs.

The walkway passes over a new bridge over a large drain near Coaltrack Road underneath which lies historic brick arch and cobble culvert.

At Glentunnel you can grab an ice cream at the local dairy or take a tour of the historic buildings dotted through the township, such as the library or the chapel. Glentunnel has a historical association with local coalmines, potteries and brickworks of the Glentunnel/South Malvern area. Many of the miners’ cottages are still lived in today.
