Spray Tunnel

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Just outside the historic mining town of Zeehan in Tasmania’s west is the Spray Tunnel Loop, an easy one-hour return walk that passes through the Spray Tunnel.

Walk through the 100-metre long abandoned train tunnel to the remains of the Spray Silver Mine. You’ll find relics of buildings and abandoned boilers – a reminder of the west’s mining past.

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 m wide and 100 m long.
