Mt.Gipps (Qld side of the Nsw/Qld Border Tunnel) during construction of the Sydney to Brisbane line in 1927. The tunnel was costructed from both sides of the Mt. & met within a few inches of the center. Senitor Nevil Bonner was the first person to be passed from NSW to Qld. when the miners broke through. He was taking a Billy Can of water to his uncle when the break through happened.
