Being in Melbourne, I'm thinking of grabbing my camera and taking a few happy snaps of areas like Fisherman's Bend and RAAF Williams (not Williamstown, it's in Laverton, but near enough). Though there's probably nothing much to see, I'll at least have a look. Has anyone else found anything interesting to photgraph or is it all uninteresting?
Also, Melbourne has quite a few old tunnels underneath it, not just the mystery plugged up tunnel near the Parliament buildings that sanctum mentioned. There was meant to be a tunnel (that one or another one maybe) that let the pollies sneak over to the red light district! There's also a tunnel from Melbourne High School (used as an American base during WWII) that goes, well I don't know where... another under the government district that was used for moving documents (before that, gold) between the treasury and other buildings, complete with a little railway. Used up until the 60s or 70s. Not very mysterious that one, but there is also a whole network of disused services tunnels under the streets in the downtown 'grid' area. Plenty of room for underground oddities here...
Australians are some of the dumbest people on earth, i know i live in australia, australians are ignorant stupid bitches.

I think you may be referring to the Swan Island Defence Facility.
