The Devonshire Street Tunnel is a 300-metre-long (980 ft) pedestrian tunnel located beneath the southern end of Central station connecting the suburb of Surry Hills with Railway Square in the Sydney central business district.
Opened in 1906 joining as a pedestrian continuation of Devonshire Street in the east to Lee Street in the west, it cut through what was the Devonshire Street Cemetery. In the early 1970s, the tunnel was refurbished with terrazzo panels and fluorescent lights and extended 80 metres (260 ft) to the west under Railway Square. In 1985 murals of trains and railway infrastructure were painted on the walls of the tunnel.
