Old Treasury and Tunnels
Walk starting point:
This tour explores the Old Adelaide Treasury building, one of Adelaide’ s oldest and most significant historical sites. From the founding of the colony, through the gold rush era, Federation and two World Wars, this building was at the heart of South Australia’s political life. The tour includes the former Cabinet Room and underground passages where gold from Victoria was stored to be smelted into Australia’s first gold coin, the Adelaide Pound.
Journey above and below ground with us to explore the secrets of one of Adelaide’s most fascinating colonial buildings!
