Tunnel Beach

Tunnel Beach @Stuff

Tunnel Beach is a great photo moment. Access is via a relatively steep path that leads to a rugged beach framed by soaring cliffs. You get a sense of desolation and wild beauty that characterises much of the Southern beaches. You will pass through a hand cut tunnel. The story behind the tunnel starts on a good note, three girls wanted to swim regularly at the beach, their father John Cargill commissioned the tunnel. According to legend one of the daughters later drowned. The drowning is conjecture and unproven. The tunnel was opened to the public in 1983. Look for the hand cut tools on the sides. If you visit only one beach for insta moments Tunnel Beach is a recommended choice.

St Kilda beach is a well known local beach. It can experience wild surging waves in stormy weather. This can make for dramatic backdrops for photo moments.
