G,day mate. figured i would drop in and add some FACTS. The tunnel system under the holden plant at Elizabeth is of two levels that i have seen.
observed them when holdens were digging their 3 storey deep hole to fill with cement for the stamping presses for the VE holden. have seen photos of
navy gun barrels stored under the holden plant. holden also used to store car bodies in parts of the tunnel system.
one entrance was in the body shop north western corner by the passage to final assembly.
tunnels run between dsto, the RAAF base and holdens. and go back to michells on main north road salisbury.
cannot confirm that tunnels extend back into Adelaide passing under river torrens, but have been told that they do. the old PMG/telecom/telstra
phone exchange building in waymouth street had a complex under the sub basement built as a nuclear shelter.
Woodside army camp had an underground storage room in the 3RAR lines holding war stocks.
Gawler, tunnels now growing mushrooms once held munitions for the airforce. when the last rework of the bypass was carried out they located the lost
underground RAAF hospital. it is now filled in. note. there were a group of approx 5 airstrips between gawler and mallala during ww2. training pilots.
at end of war all aussie mustang pilots were trained there and prob was part of the empire training scheme as well.
There is a tunnel at army HQ canberra passing from army to navy buildings. if you go look at the statue of the eagle on the dome over looking the
large open area the tunnel passes underneath you.
back in the late 70's the police out at richmond NSW. got sick of the kids they were chasing pulling a vanishing act. one copper put the effort into
a walk through the scrub area and found where the kids vanished to. RAAF world war 2 underground control centre with a map of the world showing the
location of all RAAF units. the RAAF had forgotten about it. port pirie, mildura, streakey bay, out williamstown way behind gawler. i spent a lot
time in the RSL'S talking to old diggers when i was a young digger. oh and bunkers between middle beach and proof range and up in the hummocks behind
port wakefield. enjoy people.
