At least in terms of UFO's and the like.

Has anyone seen anything in this country? I know about Pine Gap but even when you look at that area I hear very little about actual sightings of UFO's.

Even less around the rest of the country.

I've never seen anything myself either, well... nothing I could confirm as a UFO I guess. It's all a bit dull!

So, are there any decent sightings that've happened in Australia and I'm just missing out or what? Are there areas that are frequently producing UFO's?

I want to know out of my own curiosity. QLD is preferred but I bet theres even less in that state.

Yeah not wrong there. Theres barely a sighting out here that even gets the attention of the news. Pine gap is about as much mystery as you'll get in old boring aus, man I cant even remember the last time a UFO report was on the news, Wait I think once of twice but thats about it. I used to be a big news watcher but its all filtered garbage now, I choose the internet anyway at least there are no ads.

The only thing thats on the news lately is the floods and drought not a UFO in sight. Il have to see if I can get some guys from the US to send some over here, nah wouldnt bother the aleins would probably turn back anyway

The americans are stealing all the fun........ heeeey send some over heeeeeear

20 million people in a Country almost the sizee of the USA. I wouldn't say UFOs are any rarer in Australia... just that there's less people reporting them.

I don't know of any famous cases though.

Yeah I think everyone goes to bed in out neighborhood about 9 at night, out of the whole street mine is the only one on 3 in the morning. If anything did go by no one would see it there all asleep. I've seen a couple but that would have to be probably 3 in about sixteen years. Wouldn't want to hold my breath, thats for sure.

Actually your quite wrong, the Stuart Highway and the town of Tennant Creek in NT has more UFO sightings per year than anywhere else in the world.

Allot of it just isn’t reported in the mainstream media, heck the only thing reported on the news here is local stories for local people.

Here ya go, a town just outside of Tennant Creek, this little town of Wycliffe Well is in the top 5 of UFO’s reported in the world, lol

OP are u out of your brain?! Australia is huge for UFO sightings, browse some of the threads on it. Most of the people I consider 'close' have seen what I would consider genuine UFOs. Hotspots abound, I believe Atherton Tablelands and the Hinterland of Sunshine Coast are / were hotspots in QLD.

Just because they aren't reported in the news media doesn't mean they aren't being seen.

Besides, even if the aliens are ignoring Australia, it doesn't mean you live in a boring country, what with your Yowies, Bunyip, Aboriginal curses and the like...

...and drop bears...can't forget the drop bears.

So you just came on here to complain?! lol It might be the fact that U.S. is the most powerful nation on earth. Also that we had the Roswell event take place here and possible further contact with EBE's which could well be on-going
and there is your answer. Australia, nice as it on the a$$ end of this planet and keeps itself to itself (which is a good thing) but nothing much of interest to "them" as they can see the same things and more over the continental United States. Hope that answers your very fascinating query

Duality, roughly where in Australia do you live?

Join a local UFO organisation, attend the discussion nights and see how many local reports are made. You might be surprised...

Don't rely on the MSM reporting everything to you as it happens!

I actually stayed at Wycliffe well one night. Some of the stories that the owners told were quite freaky. And if Wycliffe Well isnt your could always stay at the Devils Marbles to the North of it. That is one very scary place if you're alone there at night

Duality, I was a member of VUFORS for quite a few years. You really need to do some research (REAL RESEARCH) before you sound off like that!

Plus - I didn't appreciate the way you framed the Topic Heading. Made me hot under the collar. It was very insulting! ... to me anyway. Don't know about some of you other Aussies.

Check out this thread (below) "An Australian Account". It's mine!'

I can assure you, it certainly wasn't boring. And it's a better, more detailed account than most of the "I seen some distant lights in the sky" stuff that's around these pages.

If anything I think Australians are less inclined towards sensationalism than many other countries. Probably less inclined to hoax things as well. Plus our population for such a large country is sparse compared to many others.

Boring No!
Misunderstood - Obviously Yes!

Hey hey,

This is my first post on ATS, I've been checking in out since around xmas.

I gota co-sign with my man InfaRedMan, The topic heading was a little insulting and yeah I guess Aussies tend to be a little more sceptical about these types of things than yanks. I do remember a couple years ago a "crop circle" type thing that was of a large Aboriginal man that was reported quite a lot in the press, don't know if it was proved a hoax or not.

That was an art installation out near the mining monstrosity that is Leigh Creek unless I'm mistaken.

I had a book that I loaned to someone a few years ago and they never returned it. Titled "The Gosford Files"' it's a paperback documenting all the sightings and weird things that have happened on the NSW Central Coast. There is a UFO interest group here on the coast somewhere, anyway they compiled and had it published.

I can also tell you that as as child when I would come to the coast for school holidays, my mother and grandmother would often sit on the porch at night in Berkeley Vale (right on Tuggerah Lake) and they would see all kinds of lights and strange things. Back then there were no street lights and very few houses...we are talking bush, before the place turned into suburbia.

I see strange stuff in the sky all the time...I don't bother to mention it...I know they are watching us

I kind of agree with the OP in one regards, as personaly I have never see anything that may even be classed as a UFO/fireball everything I see is the usual helicopter or plane.

I live in the Central Queensland area on the coast and enjoy photography every time I go for a walk day or night I take at least 30-70 pics of the sky alone with a Canon Eos 400d (on the highest quality 12mp) for the rare chance of something weird may showing up. but hopefully persistance pays off on day.

I (being an aussie) think it's just that we don't seek to draw attention to ourselves with claims that would appear wacky to the average citizen. UFO sightings are the sort of thing we'd share with the only most trusted friends over a few drinks, not skeptical reporters and I kept quiet about my one sighting for ages hoping to find someone else talking about the same sighting. Tully in QLD was a hot spot ages ago with lots of credible sightings, now it's Wycliffe Wells and the Nullarbor Plain.

How about Fred Valentich's disappearance while flying a small plane across Bass Strait for a sensational event? Well documented and as yet unexplained.


Boring country? not at all

Hi there,
Actually there are plenty of UFO sightings in Australia. When I spent some time in the USA I remember seeing information on UFO's and Australia, not that I went looking but when you're in a forign land you notice strange things like this relating to home.

I had one experience as a kid with my mum, driving home in a small coastal/country town back in the early 1990's.

I was in the front passenger seat, looking outside to the left (we’re on the other side of the road here!) at a cloudless, clear sky and I swore the stars were moving. I then noticed a very triangular pattern of lights which seemed to sprawl out along the sky.

I didn't think much of it until a few moments later when I said to my mum, "I think those stars are moving". We pulled over and it was black, there are no streetlights paving the way, nor was there a bright bulb of light above us from any nearby city which meant we could see the stars very clearly.

We had a look and I remember my mum saying to me "We better get back in the car". Whatever had these light patterns wasn't very close to us but it was big, quiet and was; from the angle I could see triangular.
Funny enough, about 4 years ago now, I was spending some times with friends down there and this story came up. This object was seen by many people around the same time, so I know it wasn't just us.

This was a coastal town in Victoria, Australia with a population at the time of around 2000.
