While looking at google maps in satelite view I came across these facilities out near laverton in WA. You need to zoom right in to see. They both look related, same buildings both have bitumin air strips on road in .similar grids on graded areas .may be radio telescopes
location 1 has fence and gate out to Erliston-Nambi road turn off.
Dose anyone know what they are ? not mines

I'm guessing they might be part of that new wide aperture radio telescope array

That part of Australia will now be a target for the North Koreans.

Jindalee Operational Radar Network

There is a free camping spot just east of the Laverton site. We had no idea this was here and when darkness fell we could see all the lights in the distance, very eerie.

The Wikipedia article above gives you all the details and location of the other sites for the network.
