Some time ago, a chap posted that he was going to search for wartime bunkers, he had been told about in Northern WA.

Did he ever come back and tell the results of his searches.

Thanks

Woodman Point Regional Park allows you picnic and barbecue facilities, a spot of fishing, swimming, camping, take in a bit of sailing, snorkelling, scuba diving and leave time to check out the historical wartime munitions bunkers.

Point Peron is about 1 km from me and Woodman Point is about 10 kms. There's a few old concrete bunkers around but "they don't blow my frock up."

Hey Col

I have seen concrete ammunition stores on the back roads between Merridin and Mukinbudin around Nungarin WA.
some of them are used by farmers for storage
others are in ruin
my parents have some furniture stored in one
Dont know if these are the bunkers you are refering to?

Cheers

Get out and get dirty

According to the post as I remember it, these bunkers were well north of Perth and perhaps around truscott.

I personally doubt if they exist.

However I have found out, that sometimes one of these red herrings comes up.

Try Corunna Downs South of Marble Bar, an old bomber base still has runways gun enplacments and bunkers where they dispursed the liberators. Still some remains of the old barracks and junk. enen the windsock pole is still there.

Hi,

There's a couple about 200m or so off Wanneroo Rd just past the Yanchep NP entrance.
