What lies beneath our city streets? Check out Sydney’s secret train tunnels!

Ever wondered what secrets lie beneath our city streets?

Under St James Station, in Sydney’s CBD, a labyrinth of disused railway tunnels are now part of a grand proposal by the NSW Government to transform the space in to a buzzing hub of underground restaurants, bars and shops.

The tunnels were built in the 1920s for a proposed train link to the northern beaches but abandoned during the great depression, and later earmarked for air raid shelters during World War II but never used.

Sydney Trains is managing the expressions of interest with the assistance of CBRE, an international real estate agent.
