Spray Tunnel in Zeehan
Ever walked through a 100 metre long abandoned railway tunnel?
Just outside of Zeehan in Tasmania's west is the Spray Tunnel Loop, an easy one-hour return walk that passes through the Spray Tunnel, a 100-metre long abandoned train tunnel that leads to what was the Spray Silver Mine.
The tunnel was carved through the hill so that ore could be moved from the mine. The tunnel is unusually shaped like a keyhole, approximately 3 metres high and 2.2 metres wide and 100 metres long.
Once through the tunnel you'll find the relics of buildings and abandoned boilers – a reminder of the West's mining past.
For the start of the walk, head north towards the end of town and turn left onto Fowler Street and follow it to the end past the golf course.
