The Tunnels

The Tunnels, 4 Railway Terrace, Panorama, Kaurna Country

The tunnels were built in 1880. The first ever tunnels built in South Australia, they opened up the line between Adelaide and Melbourne. The tunnels were decommissioned in 1920 when a new tunnel was built to eliminate the problem of sharp bends, single and and inadequate viaduct. 

During the war, the tunnels were used to store government documents and artworks and prior to The Tunnels Wine Storage, it had been used as a mushroom farm due to its naturally cool climate. 


In 2002, the tunnels were leased from the Government and The Tunnels Wine Storage was born.
