Tunnel to Tar-Ra

$22.95 inc. GST.

Read about the perilous adventures of Oliver, Jemima, Millie and Archie as they explore a tunnel that leads from the cellar of Sydney’s Hero of Waterloo hotel. They exit it in the year 1791. Where are they?

The time travellers have stepped into a living history book. They meet Aboriginal and convict people, witness or hear of events and see the settlement living conditions. All as recorded in journals, letters and reports by the British First Fleet settlers of Sydney Cove.

Danger is never far away and Aboriginal youths help conceal the teenagers. There is a flogging, an amputation and Archie, while under cover, watches as several convicts escape in a boat late at night.
During their adventure they see and experience so much more.

And what do Oliver, Jemima, Millie and Archie learn from their incredible journey? Do they make it back home to modern day Sydney?


A story with a great pace and lots of drama and I have learned a lot about the intimate history of the settlement. I really enjoyed ‘Tunnel to Tar-Ra’ and I feel that it has really hit the mark for young readers.

Boyer captures a sense of story, character and place. The revelations about the extraordinary life of Nanberry bring to the forefront stories that should never be forgotten. An important, wonderful work.
