More commonly known as CSIRO AAHL

This place is roughly 2 kilometers from where I live, and it's always had me slightly worried yet intrigued at the same time.

I know it's usually Military bases and stuff that appear here, but I thought this eyeball of the area that I did awhile ago would be a nice change.

Welcome to the Australian Animal Health Laboratory, hosted in Geelong, Victoria.

A high security national laboratory.


I will include some photos that I've gathered and taken personally towards the end of the post.

Some Background Information and Interesting Facts About CSIRO

The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) is the national government body for scientific research in Australia. It was founded in 1926 originally as the Advisory Council of Science and Industry.

Research highlights include the invention of atomic absorption spectroscopy, development of the first polymer banknote, invention of the insect repellent in Aerogard and the introduction of a series of biological controls into Australia, such as the introduction of Myxomatosis and Rabbit calicivirus which causes rabbit haemorrhagic disease for the control of rabbit populations.

CSIRO's research into ICT technologies has resulted in advances such as the Panoptic Search Engine (now known as Funnelback) and Annodex.

In October 2005 the journal Nature announced that CSIRO scientists had developed near-perfect rubber from resilin, the elastic protein which gives fleas their jumping ability and helps insects fly. On 19 August 2005, CSIRO and UTD (University of Texas at Dallas) announced they were able to make transparent carbon nanotube sheets that will bring carbon nanotube products to the masses.

CSIRO owned the first computer in Australia, CSIRAC, built as part of a project began in the Sydney Radiophysics Laboratory in 1947. CSIRAC is the only surviving first-generation computer in the world.

CSIRO was the first Australian organisation to start using the internet.

Some Background Information and Interesting Facts About AAHL

The Australian Animal Health Laboratory (AAHL) in Geelong, Victoria, Australia is a high security laboratory, run by the CSIRO for exotic animal disease diagnosis and research. They have world-class animal facilities at all levels of biosecurity, up to physical containment level 4 (PC4)

AAHL has produced new diagnostic tests, vaccines and treatments for both exotic and endemic animal diseases.

The facility combines a capacity to rapidly diagnose disease with quality research, making it a global leader in a wide range of animal and zoonotic diseases. Zoonotic diseases are those which can pass from animals to people.

It opened in 1985 and cost $185 million.

Signs Tell the Story

Close as I can Get - Can just about make out the main inner perimeter fence

The Unidentified Thing - No idea why there's a red light.

A Ladder Next to It - Could be for maintenance, but I'm not sure what kind.

Bit Clearer - When viewed with binoculars, solid doors at the front of that structure were plastered with warning signs of all kinds.

Hello! - Scanned from AAHL Publication

Put it this way, if we were ever engineering biological and biochemical weapons this would probably be the place where they live. If we were ever to interfere with Human Cloning, Genetics and Embryonic Research in humans, this is where it would probably start.. You obviously already know they do the same to animals here.

Gotta love my back yard.. Hope someone enjoyed the small tour!

Nice thread, I've never heard of this place before.

This is a sewer pump station, the red light is to indicate if there is a problem with the pump.

The ladder, obviously is to get down to the pump.

Ok, first of all, why so suspicious of AAHL


Is that clear enough?

AAHL has not, does not, and will NEVER perform any function other than to PROTECT animals and humans from new and emerging viruses, that occur NATURALLY - in NATURE.

Why the hell would you suspect AAHL of performing illegal, weird ass genetic engineering, or create bio-weapons?

If you have the nerve, go righg ahead and prove it.

I'm saying this to you because I work at AAHL - in both BSL3 & 4 containment areas.

I know everything that goes on inside. Trust me when I tell you we PROTECT life, not make out to be some #ed up American secret laboratory bull#, that you have obviously been brainwashed into thinking.

On another note, I've sent and distributed your post to a number of, shall I say, highly valuable, powerful and important people, so they can keep an eye on you and your movements. All back traced through to the originating trail of IP address created when you posted this.

Someone as suspicious as yourself, who, by the way, should NOT have taken those photos. It's a good thing our security and hidden surveillance captured you photographing AAHL.

So, in summation, lighten up and stop being so paranoid.

I highly, HIGHLY suggest refraining from responding to this, as it will only add to the already strong trail.

Yours sincerely.

If there is nothing going on, why are you taking so much action against a bloke posting stuff online? If he was such a threat, why wasn't he intercepted while he took the photos? Its not like it was a cut and run exercise, he was obviously there for a while. I would think its you that needs some lightening up... Simply telling him he was wrong, and what you do there would have sufficed. I think it would have lessened the interest in the facility. From your reaction, there will now be MORE interest than just being straight with the OP. Just my 2C.

Yay for transparency in government--CSIRO is still government innit? or did we sell it to Monsanto already?

If there is nothing dodgy going on there then why should the OP refrain from taking photos? Its not like the experiments are running around in the yard--or are they?

is this where they are breeding the tasmanian tiger? CSIRO are the nazi scientists that came here thru operation paperclip.

I wouldnt be surprised if they were working on bio-weapons.

Why so suspicious?

Maybe you should ask the Chinese Government, a former employee it was announced yesterday has stolen a whole bunch of intellectual property from the CSIRO and immediately made a run out of the country and back to China it was reported on the news yesterday.

China would not be sending spies to the CSIRO if there wasnt anything there that they could benefit from.

I'd be surprised if any user can see another users IP address. Moderators perhaps.

You have my permission to reveal my IP address.

Oh, and I enjoyed the tour.

Here's a list of some of the bio-weapons they have made:

Hendra virus – discovered to be the cause of a highly lethal disease in horses and humans in Queensland in 1994. Hendra virus has re-emerged in Australia several times since its discovery. Find out more about Hendra virus.
Australian bat lyssavirus – a rabies-like virus discovered in 1996 that has been found in flying foxes and bats throughout Australia. It has caused illness and death in humans. Find out more about Australian bat lyssavirus.
Menangle virus – which caused serious reproductive disease in pregnant sows and a flu-like illness in piggery workers in New South Wales in 1997.
Nipah virus – the cause of a previously unrecorded viral disease that killed more than 100 people and thousands of pigs in Malaysia in 1999. Nipah virus has re-emerged in Bangladesh several times since 2001. Find out more about Fighting Nipah virus.
Melaka virus – identified in Malaysia in 2006 as the cause of respiratory tract illness in humans. Find out more about the Discovery of new bat-derived virus in humans.
Beilong virus – isolated from rodents and identified in 2006 through collaboration between researchers in Beijing and Geelong.

Wow. Threats of cyberstalking right there, in conflict with the australian laws against using a carriage device to make threats or harrass others. Clap clap.

I quoted the above bit because it was quite amusing, reminded me of the angry dad from the Jessi Slaughter video. (Because I backtraced it)

Somehow I doubt the authenticity of this post. A) brand spanking new account that appears almost immediately after OP's post and b) for someone from a reputable australian scientific organisation, there appears to be a lack of appropriate conduct in regards to federal law and CSIRO protocol. Clap clap again.

Or some moron security guard at the facility who thinks he holds more authority than he does. Being a lowly peon he would not actually be a CSIRO employee, just from a contracted security company.

Maybe not thou, but its clear from the language and use of CAPS TO EMPHASISE A POINT, that this person is not a scientist and has probably no formal education past secondary school.


I have a dynamic IP so I'd love have him (or anyone) post my IP range

Hey everyone. I've just joined this site and hope to enjoy what's on here.

I saw this post and thought I'd put a comment on, so hello

I think that AAHL place is interesting and am kinda curious about it, you know, being a Level 4 lab and all.

Wonder if they could get away with secret research stuff there, but then if they're a commonwealth place how could they get away with it? I don't know much about it all sorry so please help me if you can!.

I've been watching this US series called Helix, not sure if anyone here has seen it?

It's about a secret research base in the arctic and some virus has caused havoc, anyway it goes through each episode and more gets revealed, things aren't what they seem at first, etc etc. A typical like biohazard show.

Hope to keep posting here.
