The other side of the Swan View Tunnel.
Did you know, Swan View tunnel is the earliest railway tunnel in West Australian history?
Designed by brilliant engineer, CY O'Connor, and opened in February 1896, the 340m Swan View Tunnel was built to overcome a granite barrier formed by a fold in the Darling Range.
The tunnel ceased to be used for rail traffic after the new Avon Valley rail route was opened in 1966.
