You are persistent.Try searching about 350 k's north around Boulia for anything unusual.This is the home of the Min Min lights ,a mysterious light that follows travellers for long distances ,it has been approached but never identified .It is said that anyone who catches the lights will disappear!

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).

www.water.gov.au...


this link only shows large capacity dams, the dams that are spread throughout outback properties are usually smaller in size.
these are called 'turkey nests' and consist of a buildup or mound of dirt surrounding a shallow dig out.
the photo's show these so called bunkers to be around 250feet square which for the size, be the same as a smaller dam and not shown in the link for water resources.
The area where they are also shown would be a flood zone as well, so after any substancial rains, this whole area would be under water(hence the darker color) so wouldn't be the best place to build any type of bunker underground. good find though.

here's a good example in this location,
-17.789371,140.954735

Farm dams can and do explain 10 of the 11 structures, but bunker/structure nr. 6 can't be a farm dam.

any particular reason why? Its square, its clearly dry, you can even see where the walls were made from the scrapings on either side. Its clearly located in a shallow dry creek area. What makes this dam(because that is what it is) different from others?

I take it back...i can now also see that nr.6 is a farm dam.

I really hoped i had found something, but it was only some bloody Farm Dams....better luck next time...

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





Just because there is 115 or however many people living in a small nearby town, doesn't mean that said alleged power station is meant to power their tiny town only. Ever heard of power transmission lines? These days they don't have to be above ground hanging from giant poles, the cables can be under ground.

Not that I'm saying what you found is a geothermal power station.
But I just thought I'd address this post of yours.

And another thing, usually in the outback, they don't have paved roads. They have dirt tracks. They aren't always going to show up on a crappy satellite image that Google provides for free to the public.

It's the middle of nowhere...there isn't anything to see..so it would be pointless for Google to send it's streetview cars out there to snap photos.

Forgive me but I am new to posting here, but a long time lurker. I am getting married to an australian who spent 15 years in the defense force (army) there. He told me a story once about a desert where they had lost several airplanes due to being covered in sand. could this possibly be some of them?

Not so puzzling - Birdsville goes from a small town to one of over 6,000 every year in september when the 'Birdsville races' are held.

You can get pretty close with Bing maps. Looks like they are filled with water:
