The hidden tunnels of St James Station, Sydney

Behind one of Sydney’s underground stations lies a labyrinth of disused tunnels. Many built for train lines that never eventuated and now lay dormant. Some have seen some seen use as a mushroom farm and film sets for movies such as The Matrix Revolutions and The Tunnel. But today they sit empty. Slowly filling with water. So much so that one of the big tunnels is now considered an underwater lake.

Today these tunnels are a popular spot for underground adventurers. Though it is highly illegal. Lucky for me, there were some official tours of these tunnels lead by a local historical group. So here are my photos from that tour.
