Experience the impressive and historic Swan View Tunnel, the delightfully scenic National Park Falls and views of the Swan Coastal Plain from the Eagle View Lookout on the Tunnels, Falls & Eagle Views Hiking Experience.
The Swan View Tunnel, located in John Forrest National Park was built in 1895 and is the earliest tunnel in WA's history. The construction of the railway line was a major engineering project managed by C Y O'Connor. An incredible amount of rocks and rubble were moved to construct the embankments, along with intensive blasting, digging, dynamite and horsepower.
