Current Research (as at 30th June 2003) Research to date has been limited to surface visuals by private researchers with a refusal of academia to participate on political grounds. Officially, the sites do not exist. Current controversy relative to Aboriginal land claims has the Government somewhat paranoid about a possible land claim by outsiders, relative to the overwhelming evidence being uncovered of such colonies in the BC era. Academia is strictly limited in its research to Aboriginal cultures. First brought to public awareness in 2000 by local researchers, the sites and evidence triggered off media hysteria with the facts distorted into fictions. Other sites, of course, relate and Sarina is not the epicenter but only part of the huge complex now being uncovered. The researchers fight guerrilla warfare against established dogmas and political censorship with no funding and laws that prohibit private excavation, removal of artifacts and investigation of wrecks.
Its location is a closely guarded secret. CSIRO astro-physicist Professor Ray Norris said the precise alignment of the stones proved it was constructed to map the sun. "This can't be done by guesswork, it required very careful measurements. If it goes back, let's say, 10,000 years, that predates the Egyptians, the Pyramids, Stonehenge, all that stuff," Professor Norris said.

I firmly now believe the Australian government had previously placed a spy into ATS for potential information gathering purposes and became extremely worried about a possible land grab or WAR by a middle eastern country claiming to be the rightful owners of this land due to alleged ancient artifacts having been discovered here yet not recognized by the government. Also they would be certainly worried about radical Muslims using this as their ideology for Aussie jihad.
So this whole sundial thing in my opinion has been hoaxed and planted into some questionable news website by the government for damage control.
