Mushroom Tunnel


The former Redbank Range Railway Tunnel is historically significant as the first railway tunnel used by the NSW Railways. It is also historically significant as one of the structures and works which provide evidence of the Great Southern Railway.

In addition, it has further associations with the history of WWII as one of a number of disused railway tunnels which were used for defence storage purposes and then subsequently given over to the peacetime use of commercial mushroom growing. It also has technical significance as a fine example of the stone-masonry and tunnel design of its time.

Please note that at this stage, the tunnel is only open to the public on weekdays from 9am - 2:30pm.

Access inside the tunnel is currently unavailable but the tunnel can be viewed externally until further notice.
