Corner Marion & Edgar Street, Bankstown.
2nd January, 1996.
Predator, Howie, Burzum, Sarg, Jim and ...... 2 others.
Getting in: 8/10 before the Boyz & Clan sledged a nice hole in the wall for you all.
Not much good air. Lots of good falls off the edge of the top floor. Lotsa debris around.
Anyone who may suffer from clostraphobia should not attempt to gain access coz youll
go burko at this one. The entrance which is now resealed was on public land next to
some old codgers house and he will call the cops on you if he see's you. Which maybe
hard not to do.
From the entrance you must get on your back and pull youself under the overhanging roof
of the bunker. You will be in a tunnel which runs down the back wall of the bunker for about
30 metres or so. You will then have to do a 90 degree turn and start crawling around the
side wall to which you will find a smashed open airvent at about head level.
Now this is the tricky bit. You have to go in feet first, face down. We will leave the finer points
upto you. But its not easy. Once you have your feet in Push yourself in. You will now find your
legs hanging in the bunker. Grab onto the supplied rope and lower yourself into the bunker
(about 2metres) you will find a foot hold under your right foot about half way down (its a pipe
leant against the wall).
Now your in the bunker. Be careful coz right next to the hole you just came out of is a big drop to
your left. Here you will find the escape hole in the wall. This was used incase the bunker was ever
found by the enemy and they had to escape out quickly. This escape tunnel has been back filled
and we dont know where it exits.
Also up here you will find the toilet block and bedrooms, etc. Follow the walkway around the outter
rim of the bunker. You will discover lots of anti-rooms for god knows what.
This walk way should take you around to the opposite side of the bunker to the main entrance.
Off in this room you will come across whats left of the aircon units. You will notice a pile of dirt
upon which one of them sits. This was possibly the secret staircase to the other hidden levels
(good luck!) and the infamous tunnel to bankstown airport. The main entrance is behind some
corrugated iron. Behind this is about 10 tons of dirt (bring your shovel, or use the ones we found
