I am a big fan of Google Earth and i have my moments where i do look for some new and mysterious places, and i now think i finally found something worth mentioning in the Australian Simpson Desert.

Just 50 miles south of a tiny town called Birdsville, Queensland there is a dark patch of desert. Around this dark patch of desert there are 11 bunkers or structures of some kind (maybe entrances). This looks strange and i have no idea what it is.

It seems like the Burke and Wills expedition 1860-61 went through or close to this dark patch of desert.

Does anyone know what these structures are and the purpose of it...???

Bunker Nr 1: 26°40'15.63"S, 139°27'23.96"E

Bunker Nr. 2: 26°39'24.99"S, 139°32'24.74"E

Bunker Nr. 3: 26°38'59.77"S, 139°37'56.50"E

Bunker Nr. 4: 26°41'41.84"S, 139°29'52.81"E

Bunker Nr. 5: 26°43'56.09"S, 139°27'26.97"E

Bunker Nr 6: 26°45'22.44"S, 139°25'13.52"E

Bunker Nr 7: 26°44'43.01"S, 139°20'21.64"E

Bunker Nr 8: 26°45'16.18"S, 139°19'44.90"E

Bunker Nr 9: 26°46'0.45"S, 139°16'13.53"E

Bunker Nr 10: 26°42'41.54"S, 139°17'11.23"E

Bunker Nr 11: 26°38'24.22"S, 139°17'40.65"E

Nice find but i have no idea what those little bunker's are. The roads there don't look very used as well but those little bunkers dont look too old, but they may be i dont know.

It's very remote whatever it is.

Just checked out your find .They looked like dams or water storage at first but the area doesnt look like typical cattle grazing country .The elevation is pretty flat around the area .Could be mining sites .I would go out there but is about 1500ks ride from my place

Could be birdsville's geothermal power station it draws water from nearby Artesian basin couldnt get a link but if you google Birdsville mining should get you there.Possible explanation!

If you take a close look at Bunker Nr. 6 it might be the main complex, because it's the only one of the 11 sites that has 3 connecting structures.
What is also strange is that 2 (Bunker Nr. 5 & 9) of the 11 bunkers are black the rest of them are white/grey.

Found an Australian land ownership Map, but it doesnt help much.

That land comes under ''other''. Not Crown or Mining.

Also it is from 2002 so it may have changed

Birdsville has a population of 115 people so it seems strange to build so many geothermal power station for that town alone and the structures looked nothing like any geothermal power station i could find in Google images.

It could support that theory if there was an underground secret base or something like that, that needed that much power.

The strange thing is the place itself...the desert are so dark, almost black and it's so isolated with no roads leading to these structures.

It's a puzzle 4 me

Although even know that map states that land as other. It also classifies the Pine Gap Area in the category as well.

The Geothermal plant apparently supplies 30% of birdsville power needs ,which is enough for about 1/4 of population .It does seem like an unusually large project for only 30 people unless they use it for the fridges to keep all the beer cold.Each bunker does seem to have a connecting road and also a river or creek flowing into them.I cant get too close with google earth it blurs out to low.Lets hope we can find the answer to this because you could be on to something.

You say little bunkers, but they range from 100-200 meters in length.
These bunkers or structures are huge for that isolated desert area.

I would hazard a guess at them being bores for water, even though the area might look barren, there are stations/properties nearby which this area most likely is included in.
Also a lot of oil and gas wells around so could have something to do with this as well.

If you take a close look at Bunker/structure Nr.5 it is pitch black.
It seems to me that it could be a huge hatch or opening. It measures 70 meters across.

If you see this as an underground secret military facility, structure Nr. 5 could in fact be an entrance for some sort of flying vehicle possible UFO related.

Just a thought...

That looks like a military facility with it's own airport in the middle of nowhere, nice

I couldn't see the facility in that pic? Where was it?

They are dams for water. They are everywhere here in Australia in the outback on land. Farmers/land owners have them as a way to get water to their stock etc as it’s the middle of the desert so any water is precious, so they try keep it when they get it.

As you can see with the ones you found they are dried up.

Here is some more information on Farm Dams in South Australia for you:

Farm dams could be a good explanation.
Here is an overview of all big farm dams in Australia and there are no farm dams in that location (maybe 2 small).
