My second image from our walk around Freo is of the eastern entrance to the Whalers’ Tunnel under the Round House at Arthur’s Head.
The Whalers’ Tunnel was built by the Fremantle Whaling Company in 1837 to transport goods between the original port at Bathers Beach & the town at Arthur’s Head. It was the first tunnel built in Western Australia and runs directly below the Roundhouse (which is the oldest remaining building in Western Australia). Whalers’ Tunnel is the only remaining structure of the whaling station.
I again used an HDR approach to editing this image as it really brought out the detail in the brick work & wrought iron 🙂
If you look really closely you can just make out the light shining off the old piano towards the other end of the tunnel!
