Location: Metro Adelaide

Early Adelaide buildings were often made up of independent structures connected by underground service tunnels.

Heather’s Passage is one such tunnel. Built in the late 1800s, service persons would use this 1m wide by 2m high tunnel to access different sections of the building above.

In the event of a fire, the tunnel would also be used as a fire escape.
