The Spray Tunnel is not like any other Tasmanian trail.

The tunnel is burrowed into the bottom of a hill, and unusually shaped like a keyhole, approximately 3m high, 2.2m wide and 100m long. It was carved so that ore could be moved from a mine.

To wander through the tunnel is a lot of fun. The darkness inside makes it hard to see anything in front, if not for the glow-worms shining from the ceiling.

At the far end, you'll find relics of buildings and abandoned boilers – a flashback to the west's long mining history.

Spray Tunnel, just outside of Zeehan, is an easy 1hr (6km) return walk. To find the start of the walk, head north towards the end of town and turn left onto Fowler Street, following it to its end - past the golf course - for a curious trip down a miner’s rabbit hole.
