In Australia, according to reports and occasional online discussions, the underground facilities are served by railways.
There are claims of isolated, insignificant buildings surrounded by chainlink fences. These are apparently located in rural areas and built to look
like maintenance facilities for telephone and other ordinary services. People claim to have broken-in, only to discover they contain sophisticated
devices and false-floors which conceal sophisticated communications rooms, tunnels etc. beneath. Others claim that when they approached the vicinity,
helicopters suddenly emerged 'from nowhere'.
A middle-aged businessman and his adult son claimed online a few years ago that while they were driving between Sydney and Canberra, they stopped to
relieve themselves. They had just crossed a modern bridge spanning a gorge. The son scrambled down a bushy slope. When he hadn't reappeared after
several minutes, his father called out to him. The son didn't respond, so the father, slightly alarmed and aware of the danger of snakes, scrambled
down in search of him, calling as he went.
After some minutes, he heard his son respond with 'Come look at this!'
The father joined his son at a large steel trapdoor which was set into the side of the incline. The trapdoor was open. The pair looked inside the
dark cavern. A steel ladder led downwards. The two men, after ensuring the trapdoor was securely locked in the 'open' position, climbed down the
ladder. There were several levels with steel platforms at the intervals.
When they reached the bottom, they discovered a railway track. The track gauge was narrower than that used Statewide for above-ground rail. The track
ran in both directions.
They followed the tracks for some considerable distance. Lights set into the tunnel roof or walls, flicked on automatically as they approached
The father said he suddenly felt distinctly uneasy and suggested they make their way hurriedly to the surface, which they did. They made their way
immediately to their vehicle and sped away. The father said it was several hours before his anxiety lessened.
The reasons he gave for his anxiety were:
* the trapdoor, ladders, tracks, tunnels, lighting, etc. were all clearly recent and well maintained.
* the track guage differed from any other he'd seen
* the entire facility had obviously cost a huge amount of money, yet as far as he was aware, it had never been made known to the general public
* the area was remote but well-served by above-ground rail. He could think of no reason to explain this underground system
* he instinctively felt afraid
and most importantly, from his point of view --- someone had left the trapdoor in the 'open' position. There was very little debris on the tunnel
floor or the tracks. This indicated the trapdoor was usually closed, which it would have been in any case, to prevent people from entering it and to
prevent animals from falling into it. Only when half a kilometre approx. along the tracks with his son, did his father suddenly realise that whoever
had left the trapdoor open (possibly maintenance personnel) may still be nearby and may return to either lock the door -- or discover himself and his
son exploring the facility. The father confessed that for some reason, he became suddenly deathly afraid of the latter possibility.
This story appeared on a site run by gruops dedicated to subterranean exploration.
Other posts detailed highly secret subterranean complexes beneath the Australian capitol (Canberra) and Melbourne. An entry was supposedly discovered
in one of Melbourne's parks, after a murdered girl was allegedly discovered. The murder was not reported by the media. People spoke of lights
appearning in the park on some nights, which appeared to be shining up out of the ground. Those who attempted to locate the source of the lights
(which they believed must be coming from sub-ground tunnels, caverns, etc.) were warned away by far more than usually beligerent 'personnel', who
demanded ID and 'asked a lot of questions'. Shortly afterwards, 'maintenance staff' cordoned-off the area in question. An online informant
claimed large-diameter hose-type things projected from the ground. The strange 'ground staff' responded to enquiries with ' Could I see your ID?'
and other authoritative demands and questions. The area remained cordoned off for considerable time after which security personnel moved-along those
who tried to sneak around to find the myseterious 'entrance' and source of the still-unexplained lights.
The subterranean explorer groups claimed that in the cliffs to the north of Woolongong (south of Sydney) they discovered cavernous 'entries' with
direct sea-access. They claimed these were approx. five storeys tall and deep inside they were serviced by a massive complex of ramps, stairs,
ante-chambers, etc. --- clearly a major engineering undertaking at considerable cost. All they were able to discover on plans etc. (which were
obtained via various methods) was that the facility was declared a 'stormwater' drainage system. The group found this official claim ludicrous, as
the area supposedly 'drained' via this multi-million dollar complex, was virtually uninhabited. The group speculated the facility was highly
favourable to submarines, the occupants further provided for by the access direct from sea to facility to above-ground highways.
Stories abound about alleged subterranean 'US secret bases' within the vast, uninhabited Australian outback. These are alleged to be seven levels
deep, according to 'informers' who claim to have worked on the bases' construction. Some of these 'secret US bases' are reputed to provide
open-sea-access via subterranean waterways.
And there are an equally large number of reports of 'secret US/Alien bases' within the remote Australian outback. Various groups have attempted to
get close enough to photograph what they claim are 'aliens' and 'alien craft' who live alongside US personnel at the bases. They claim that
helicopters and high-powered vehicles warn off any who come remotely near the bases.
Information is of course difficult to obtain, because the US long ago established bases in Australia and not even the Australian government is privy
to information relating to US activity. Most Prime Ministers have accepted the US 'hands off' rule. The one Prime Minister (Gough Whitlam) who
demanded transparency from the US regarding its installations etc. was swiftly kicked out of office. Since then, all Prime Ministers have behaved as
if the US presence within Australia is not happening.
