Old Treasury & Tunnel Tours

From $10

Journey above and below ground with us to explore the secrets of one of Adelaide’s most fascinating colonial buildings! 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. Restored and redeveloped as a Adina Apartment Hotel Adelaide Treasury, public tours of the site are held regularly and private group bookings can also be arranged.
