Little Peninsula and Big Peninsula Tunnels (McMahons Creek)



The Little Peninsula and Big Peninsula tunnels are located on the Yarra River, about 14 km east of Warburton.

Directions - Travel east along Warburton-Woods Point Road to McMahons Creek (past Starvation Creek Road) and you get to a signposted turnoff to the Little Peninsula Tunnel Picnic Ground.

There are barbecue facilities and a short walk (about 150m) to the Little Peninsula Tunnel.

The tunnels were created during the Gold Rush when the Yarra River was diverted to make it easier for gold miners to search for gold in the river bed.

The Tunnel can also be reached from the upper car park, which is connected by a short track to the picnic ground.

Another tunnel is at the Big Peninsula. This tunnel is about 1 km further along Warburton-Woods Point Road towards McMahons Creek. Tracks lead down from the small car park, to either side of the Tunnel. A small picnic area is at the bottom of the stairway.
