"JOINT DEFENSE SPACE COMMUNICATION STATION"
In many ways Nurrungar is similar to the base at Pine Gap. On the
surface it's military role is to draw information from a series of
geostationary satellites which watch for missile launches and
nuclear detonations throughout Asia and the Middle East. However
this represents a small percentage of it's activities.
Basically it acts as a back up facility
to Pine Gap complete with extensive underground installations and an
illegal nuclear reactor which has to be supplied with large amounts
of water carried by a regular train service originating in the
southern part of the state of South Australia. Like Pine Gap it is
situated in an isolated area of low electro magnetic activity and
sealed off from the public view by a security zone which is part of
the 'Woomera Prohibited Area'.
From the time construction of Nurrungar began in 1969 the U.F.O.
activity in the Woomera area increased to similar levels experienced
during the height of the nuclear and missile testing of the 1950's
and early 1960's. It remains one of the most active U.F.O. areas in
Australia. One source told the writer that E.T.'s used Nurrunga just
as they did at Pine Gap. They have a free hand and there was no way
of controlling them. "They run the place," he said.
Apart from it's more obvious functions, the main purpose of
Nurrungar remains top secret. It is known that it has similar
communication links as Pine Gap as well as a separate undersea cable
link to the U.S.A. Also it is rumored that direct links are
maintained with a similar installation situated in North West China
and the ultra secret American base at the South Pole.

GERALDTON WESTERN AUSTRALIA
The principal partners in this new venture are the United States and
the UKUSA agreement the British and other club
members are given access to the information gathered when it is
considered necessary. The controlling bodies of the ultra modern
installation are the American NSA and the Australian DSD. It's
purpose is to monitor the entire Australian telecommunication system
with particular emphasis placed on all incoming and outgoing
international telephone call, facsimile messages, telex and radio
It operates in conjunction with Pine Gap
and to a lesser extent Nurrungar giving it almost unlimited
intrusive powers into all levels of electronic communications in
Australia. No one is safe from it's prying abilities which take
place at every level.
As the Geraldton installation is one of the most modern of it's
type in the world it was also one of the most expensive ever built.
The Australian government announced that it had contributed four
hundred million dollars to the project but in reality their
investment was much more. A source quoted the actual figure at one
billion and four hundred million dollars with the American
government contributing equipment and technical know-how. In this
way the U.S.A. normally makes a profit on the deal particularly
after the host country covers the establishment costs in full.
Geraldton represents an important part of the constantly increasing
surveillance network based in Australia. The system as it stands now
is capable of conducting world wide clandestine surveillance and
just like its counterparts in the United Kingdom, one of it's major
purposes is to gather intelligence information from throughout the
United States. In this way the various agency head offices in the
U.S.A. cannot be accused of illegally operating outside their
charters. One has to ponder who is behind these extending tentacles
and what is their ultimate objective.

Following the high levels of British missile testing of the 1950's
and 60's the Woomera facilities fell dormant for almost twenty
years. They are now experiencing a new lease of life.
NASA has become a regular customer having launched numerous rockets
there over the past two years. The Japanese space agency will be
starting tests, of their space shuttle at the range during the
second half of 1996 and perhaps most important of all will be the
launching of the Russian designed satellite carriers which will be
assembled at the Australian Submarine Corporation in South
Australia. The government is injecting substantial funds into the
Woomera range to bring it up to modern standards and turn it into
the best space launch facility outside the U.S.A. and Russia.
It is rumoured that the new American space plane which is designed
to fly in and out of orbit under it's own power will have it's
principal base of operations at Woomera by the end of the decade and
NASA intends to construct large ground facilities there by that
This would represent a major move by
NASA as their center of operations has always been the continental
United States and there appears little reason for them to move a
large part of it to a distant foreign country. Perhaps the future
security of the American's capabilities in space are at stake in
view of a possible world disaster occurring towards the end of the
If NASA had advance knowledge of this it
would be a top national priority to reposition such vital resources

Australian personnel indicating that it no longer retains the high

frequency and resonance experimentation in conjunction with Pine Gap
and the Alaskan based HAARP project. North West Cape could be a key
point in controlling the HAARP magnetic field over a large part of

SALE RAAF BASE, VICTORIA
Probably best described as the Wright-Patterson A.F.B. of Australia,
East Sale has been involved in top secret operations since the
second World War. NASA makes extensive use of the facilities on a
regular basis and it appears to be their main Southern hemisphere
base for high altitude U2 operations over the Southern Ocean and
Antarctica. In addition to these reconnaissance operations NASA
regularly operated it's flying astronomical observatory from East
Sale as the area south of Australia provides excellent viewing of
the Milky Way galaxy and solar system.
Apart from the NASA activities many other American and foreign
nationality aircraft have been seen flying into the base or parked
outside the ground facilities. In the main these appear to be large
transport aircraft such as the C5 and C130. Some Sale residents have
told convincing stories about other strange aircraft operating
mainly at night time which appear to be American Stealth fighter
planes or very similar in design.
Since the late 1940's East Sale has been deeply involved in the
U.F.O. problem. As the main military and photographic interpretation
center in Australia it was given the initial task of examining the
sudden stream of U.F.O. movie films and still pictures which began
flowing from military sources in 1946/47 and asked to come up with
some acceptable answers. It was unable to do so. In fact it quickly
became patently obvious that they were dealing with an entirely new
phenomenon which had the characteristics of a super science which
was not of earthly origin.
Over the years and in co-operation with the United States and other
major world government authorities East Sale has become a major
U.F.O. research establishment incorporating the Australian Defense
Science and Technology Organization (DSTO).
This organization, established in the
early 1950's in conjunction with British Commonwealth and United
States government military intelligence services was given the
Australian mandate to investigate U.F.O.'s, try to determine their
origins and objectives and take advantage of any technical knowledge
gained from the investigation. Little did they know the extent of
their task and the magnitude of the problems they would have to face
over the next forty five years.
As the central point of official U.F.O. research East Sale conducts
joint investigations into all aspects of the U.F.O. phenomenon
including crash retrievals. As mentioned earlier in this report the
National Safety Council which was situated in West Sale was the main
instrument of the retrieval operations until it's sudden closure in
1989. Obviously operational methods were changed as it would be most
unlikely that interest would ever be lost in extraterrestrials
An organization the size of the East Sale D.S.T.O. requires a large
staff of trained personnel which, over a period of time, requires a
continuous flow of trained replacements who are able to continue the
research programmes as the older staff retires or leaves the group
for other reasons. Talent scouts are always on the look out for
young recruits who would best suit the future needs of the service.
One such recruit was the enthusiastic Air Training Corp pilot Frederich Valentich.
Most people are familiar with the disappearance of Frederich
Valentich on the 21st October, 1978. There is strong evidence that
Valentich, together with his Cessna 182, was abducted by a large U.F.O. while flying over Bass Strait south west of Melbourne. What
they are not familiar with was his interest in U.F.O.'s and the
special training he had in the subject during a fifteen day course
at East Sale just prior to his fateful mission.
It seems he had been recruited by the
Australian Chapter of the most secret intelligence service in the
world and was overawed by the trust that had been placed in him. The
fact he disappeared so shortly afterward and in such unusual
circumstances gives much food for, thought. Could it be that the
final encounter was expected or even arranged? Anything is possible
in the secret world, even the sacrifice of a young pilot to serve a
supposed higher cause.
Other evidence points to the fact that the East Sale base has been
deeply involved in the U.F.O. business for a long period of time.
An intriguing story was told to the author by a retired television
executive who had previously managed the news department of a major
TV station in Melbourne. He was convinced that the story was true
and the word of his then responsible staff members could not be
During the mid 1980's the TV station news department received a
standard public relations request from the RAAF East Sale air base
for a film crew and reporter to attend the opening of a new
administration building by the Minister of Defense.
On the designated day two cameramen, an assistant and a reporter
left by the company helicopter for East Sale where permission had
been granted for them, to land on the base helipad. The day was warm
and clear and due to an early departure coupled with a brisk tail
wind they arrived there around forty five minutes prior to their
They were met by two armed guards who
were very friendly and did not seem at all disturbed that they were
early for their appointment. The guards asked them to wait in a
lounge area beside the helipad, said they would return for them and
promptly left. After a few minutes the group decided to take a look
around the other helicopters that were standing on the pad and take
a few background shots for inclusion in their report.
After taking some short views of the helicopters the cameramen
walked out of the helipad area so they could take some shots of some
of the large hangers spread across the base. One such hanger was
about one hundred yards to the right of them and two side doors were
Like good inquisitive news men they
decided to walk over and ,take a look inside. As they walked towards
the hanger they noticed how quiet everything was, apart from the
aircraft standing around, the base seemed devoid of human life. They
picked up their pace and were soon at the hanger doors. What they
saw inside caused them to stop in their tracks and really wonder
what they were looking at.
Towards the rear of the hanger was a
large metallic grey disc like object standing on three short legs.
It was about sixty feet in diameter with a central height of about
eighteen to twenty feet. Scaffolding was arranged around it's right
hand side with a platform extending to what looked like a curved top
doorway situated near the top of the object. They also noticed what
appeared to be small square windows on each side of the doorway and
evenly spaced around the top of the object.
It did not take them long to realize they were in the presence of
something really unusual and their immediate reaction was to turn on
their video cameras and tape as much of it as they could. They
walked around the object noticing various details including surface
markings in various places which looked similar to Korean script. As
they walked behind the scaffolding they approached a brightly lit
mobile office and to their surprise saw that it was occupied by
There was a tall elderly balding man in a white dust coat talking to
two smaller men in the center of the office area. It appeared they
were looking at drawings on a small table and were so involved in
what they were doing they did not notice the cameramen taking videos
of them through the doorway and side windows. A minute or so passed
and then the tall man looked up and appeared puzzled by the two
He walked to the door and asked them if
HQ needed more pictures and why hadn't they called him about it. The
TV men replied that they were only looking and had nothing to do
with HQ. This really did it and the man's expression changed from
puzzlement to what could only be described as absolute horror. He
shouted at them to stay where they were and grabbed at a telephone.
At this point the two TV men decided it was time to leave and they
quickly walked around the object and out the hanger doors.
They were almost back to the helicopter
area when a car screeched to a halt in front of them. Out jumped
four guards including one of the officers who had met them about
half an hour before. He smiled and asked them what they had been
doing. They smiled back and said they had been looking around and
were particularly interested in the new plane they had seen in the
The officer looked thoughtful for a few
seconds then said as the area was restricted and photography was not
permitted without prior permission, he unfortunately would have to
insist on taking their cassettes from the cameras advising they
would be returned after security had a look at them. He then said it
was time to go to the new Headquarters Building and set up as the
Defense Minister would be arriving in about fifteen minutes. Nothing
more was said and it was if nothing had happened.
On the way back to Melbourne the cameramen discussed what they had
seen in the hanger. They both new it was not a normal aircraft and
decided it had to be one of those flying saucers that they had been
hearing about for years. Also there was something very strange about
the two small men in the mobile office. When they thought about it
they realized they were the size of five year old children but
looked much older, they wondered if they , were dwarfs, but then why
would the airforce employ such people? It just did not seem right.
A few days after the event two new tape cassettes arrived at the
television station. There was a note with them from the Airforce
advising the originals had been accidentally damaged and to please
accept tow new ones with their compliments.

Although not situated on the Australian continent the American
Antarctic Base situated at the South Pole is an integral part of
America's network of secret bases in the Southern Hemisphere. It is
linked via satellite to Pine Gap and other bases in Australia,
Christchurch in New Zealand (it's main supply base), Punta Arenas in
Southern Chile and the long standing C.I.A./NSA base in Cape Town,
The base is built mainly under the ice. This was done by mining out
large trenches in which buildings were placed in neat rows. The
trenches were then covered with ice and snow. Due to the natural ice
build up over the years the base is now deeply below the surface of
the ice cap.
Due to the large airspaces in the trenches (now tunnels) the ambient
temperature of the air was raised to above freezing level without
effecting the surrounding ice. This combined with the individual
heated buildings make it a comfortable place to live.
The main purpose of the base appears to be top secret
experimentation in the area of electro magnetism and the earth's
magnetic field. In fact so secret are these activities that
personnel are openly hostile to any uninvited visitors even though
such visits are few and far between.
One such case involved the Australian
millionaire adventurer Dick Smith in the late 1980's. Mr. Smith was
on a trans polar flight in his private plane when he encountered bad
weather and strong head winds. To play it safe he decided to land at
the American Base and request additional fuel. He later described
his arrival there as an unpleasant incident. Although the base
administration knew who he was, he was greeted by an armed angry
group of men who told him he had no right to be there and to leave
immediately. He told them that he needed fuel and would pay for it.
This was met with a refusal and an order
to take off without delay. In fact the Base Commander put the order
in the crudest of terms. So much so infact that Mr. Smith started
to fear for his life. On leaving the base he decided to turn
back to the Russian Base where he was warmly welcomed, accommodated
for twenty hours in very comfortable conditions and given all the
fuel he needed free of charge. On his return to Australia he made
very bitter comments about his reception at the South Pole.
Another rather amusing incident occurred in December, 1995. This
involved a lone Englishman who was walking and sledge sailing across
Antarctica to create a record for the Guinness Book of Records. He
sailed into the base on Christmas Day and wondered if it would be
possible( to telephone his mother in England to wish her a merry
Christmas. Once again the reception was hostile and, believe it or
not, was told to leave immediately.
Being stubborn he insisted on using the
telephone and after a lot of argument he was allowed into an above
ice hut and told he could make a quick call. He did so and after
hanging up was presented with a large bill for the cost of the call.
It was inferred he may have trouble leaving if he did not pay.
Fortunately he had spare English money on his sledge and decided to
pay up. Finally to add insult to injury he was given a very poor
exchange rate for his English bank notes.
An Australian scientist who had spent a year with the Aurora
Borealis (Southern Lights) research team at the main Australian
Antarctic Base situated at Mawson told the author an interesting
story about American activities in the region. He said that when
the Americans conducted their regular experiments big changes
occurred in the Aurora and communications were effected.
He did not know exactly what they were
doing but believed they were driving electro magnetic energy into
the earth's magnetic field which was causing the disruption in the
Aurora. He agreed that it was probably related to
experiments in Alaska as he had heard the effects on the Northern
Lights were similar.

TIDBINBILLA TRACKING STATION - AUSTRALIAN CAPITAL TERRITORY
The Tidbinbilla tracking station situated close to Canberra in the A.C.T. is the most important in Australia. Established under a joint
agreement between the United Kingdom, Australia and the U.S.A. it is
an essential part of the U.S. space programme. It is also a vital
control center for the Hubble orbital telescope. In fact the first
images transmitted by the telescope were received by Tidbinbilla and
they caused quite some concern.
A scientific advisor to the Australian Government told the author
that he was present when the first photographs arrived. They clearly
showed solar systems around the closer stars at which the telescope
was aimed. According to this advisor it was possible to discern more
than fifty new solar systems in the first few hundred pictures. It
seemed apparent that virtually every star has a solar system of one
type or another and the evidence arriving at Tidbinbilla was
The revelations caused consternation
among the control room staff, particularly the Americans who were
angered that Australians and British were parties-to these
revelations. A meeting was hastily arranged and although all present
had security clearances they were told that it was of utmost
importance that nothing leaked out and they must not talk about what
they had seen.
One American scientist said that the
public must not know about any new planets as it would "start them
thinking and who knows where that would end." It had to be kept
secret. But how can the results of such a highly publicized event be
The answer was quite simple, tell the
public that due to some miscalculations the telescope was faulty and
was not able to produce clear pictures. It would have to be modified
before it could be used properly and such modifications could only
be carried out by a special space shuttle flight to be arranged in
about two years time.
The story was accepted without question and NASA was only too happy
to take the blame. They had made such a large investment in the
Hubble telescope that it was not difficult to obtain extra
government funds to conduct the so called repairs.
NASA was now in an ideal position. It could carry out extensive
testing of the telescope in absolute secrecy as it was assumed it
did not work.
The door was open to make improvements
to the system and get a closer look at those planets. A new camera
costing U.S.$100,000,000 was constructed and a modification to the
secondary mirror system, which could be adjusted from the Earth, was
designed and produced at similar cost. The power system was expanded
in size to handle the increased electrical consumption of the new
camera and integrated computer system.
Rarely do scientists have the chance to
test their equipment in such a way and, then make modifications at
any cost. The Hubble telescope now operates around the clock and the
results are most satisfactory. All photographs are carefully checked
and even airbrushed prior to release to other scientists. The lid is
on and will stay there for a long time to come.

RADIO TELESCOPES - NEW SOUTH WALES
Situated in a beautiful area in New South Wales the Parks radio
telescope complex is perhaps the most important of it's kind in the
world. Larger facilities exist in the Northern hemisphere but none
of them have the advantage of a clear and direct window to the Milky
Parks has been involved in the U.S. space programme and many major
research projects over the past thirty years. According to a
government source it detected intelligent signals from outer space
more than twenty five years ago and has done so ever since.
Perhaps the most publicized project in
which Parks has been involved was the Search for Extraterrestrial
Intelligence (SETI) programme which was abruptly closed down in
1995. It was meant to be a cover or public relations operation to
keep the public reminded that nothing was out there and if it was,
it was so far away it could not be found. Unfortunately for the
secret governments it did not turn out that way.
Parks hit rate (a hit being a positive
identification of intelligent signals) was alarmingly high. The plug
had to be pulled before too much leaked out. The public was told
that as nothing could be found the project would be terminated
immediately to stop any further necessary depletion of funds.
The results of Parks intensive investigation produced some bizarre
results. Intelligent radio and what proved to be television signals
were identified in several parts of the galaxy and emanating from
areas up to three thousand light years away from the earth.
The contents of these emanations are
classified above top secret as they indicate that technical
civilizations equal or superior to our own were very active more
than three thousand years ago. Without d-doubt the most interesting
material of all would be the enhanced television pictures which
apparently showed the daily life of a number of alien civilizations
of ages past and still do.
The American NSA has close co-operation with Parks and has liaison
staff posted there on a full time basis. Under these arrangements
the Parks facilities are a defacto outpost of the NSA's vital
intelligence gathering network.

The late Sir Phillip Baxter who was the head of the Australian
Atomic Energy Commission during the nineteen fifties and early
sixties was convinced at that time that the world was careening head
long into inevitable nuclear destruction. He strongly advocated the
production of nuclear weapons in Australia, the strengthening of all
it's defenses and close military involvement with the U.S.A.
He said Australia could be turned into
the world's lifeboat and in the event of the major destruction he
envisaged, could harbor the most important parts of world
civilization, a sort of totally self sufficient Atlantis from which
the world could be recreated.
As it turned out it was not necessary to expend huge amounts of
capital to produce nuclear weapons as due to Australia's close
relations with the United Kingdom, and America and the fact that
Australia was already a major producer of uranium it was not
difficult to strike a deal with both parties to secretly store
suitable nuclear weapons in the country for the use of the three
allies should it ever prove necessary. However it was important to
have a suitable delivery system and the Australian Government chose
the then new American F-111 fighter bomber.
The nuclear weapon stores have remained in Australia and over the
years expanded to accommodate a wide variety of new weapon systems
that have been developed since the 1960's. This information has been
kept from the Australian public and for obvious reasons there is
little likelihood the present policy of secrecy will change.
Sir Phillip's proposal was publicly brushed aside and the media in
general tended to infer that it as nothing more than an eccentric
dream of an aging scientist. However behind the scenes his ideas
were considered with great seriousness and appear to form the basis
of current thinking in relation to Australia's strategic planning.
Nuclear war remains a threat and one which will increase as more and
more nations either buy or develop their own weapons systems.
Apart from that there appears to be
several new dangers facing the earth ranging from world climatic
disruption, possible cosmic cataclysm or even an invasion from outer
space. Whatever the driving forces are, Sir Philips original plan of
turning Australia into a lifeboat (perhaps now better described as a
fortress) seems to be the first priority and the main driving force
behind it is coming from the U.S.A.
At this point the author would like to clarify why this report was
started in the first place. It's always important to know what
motivates such things and why it is necessary to record such
During March, 1994 the author heard from a European correspondent
requesting his comments about a letter he had received from a friend
in Western Australia. To clarify this for the reader an extract of
the Australian's letter of 14th February, 1994 is quoted verbatim as
"(1) There is at the present time a
massive upgrading of the Australian rescue and disaster
services. This was started about three years ago (Circa 1991)

South Wales) will also have their gun-dealer licenses terminated
I recently had a long talk with this
man, whom I have known for a long time. He is of the opinion that
around 1997/98 the Federal Government intends to withdraw all
firearms from the general public, and that the only people who will
then have firearms will be the military and police. (Of course the
criminals no doubt will still have their illegal weapons, I
In view of the foregoing, one may legitimately ask, I think, why it
is necessary for the Australian public to be disarmed at precisely
the same time as a vastly upgraded rescue and disaster service will
be in place?

DISTURBING EVENTS ARE ENVISAGED AS TAKING PLACE AT THAT TIME!
After some thought the author made a brief reply as he was already
aware of some rather odd changes being made to emergency services
Australia wide. He believed that if urgency was involved then events
would speed up between 1994 and 1998 and so many people would be
involved that it would be impossible to keep the lid on such
developments for an indefinite period of time. Some of those
involved would have to talk. Little did the author know what he was
getting into when he started to ask questions of old friends and
contacts and probe in many dark corners.
From mid 1994 the pace of events was already showing signs of
increased speed. By the end of 1995 it was almost impossible to keep
up with the rapidly changing events and since the change of the
Federal Government in March 1996 it seems, to use American
phraseology, "all hell has broken loose".
The previously expected urgency of
Government action and their often inexpiable behaviors clearly
indicates a timetable that is being followed at all cost and one
which seems to be very limited in scale. There is a definite
atmosphere of tension and apprehension which the Government is doing
nothing to alleviate. In fact they appear to go on promoting their
plans without regard to public feelings and in some instances as if
they were hell bent on committing political suicide.
The fact that all the parties in
Government seem to be working together in some kind of national
consensus increases the strangeness of the situation. Presently no

SERVICES - MARCH 1996
The Victorian State Government headed by Mr. Jeff Kennett promised
prior to his re-election that every state secondary school will
establish emergency service cadet corps to help develop leadership
and social skills. Many private, fee paying schools have maintained
army orientated cadet corps but these have been eliminated from the
public state education system for many years.
It is interesting to note that instead of basing the new cadet corps
solely on the Army the State Government proposes to involve 213,000
students in all other military and emergency services. Students will
have a choice of training with the Army, Air Force, Navy, Police,
Fire Brigade, Country Fire Authority, Conservation Department and
the Metropolitan Ambulance Services.
It is expected that in two to three
years time a large pool of basically trained young personnel will be
available to support these services if required. This programme is
already in existence in Western Australia and it is expected to be
adopted by most other states over the next two years. The cost of
operating the scheme in Victoria is expected to be around
$50,000,000 per year.
Considering the effort being put into the reorganization and
development of all Australian emergency services the Cadet system
(like the Scout movement) is an excellent way of training young and
enthusiastic personnel for future use without having to enlighten
them as to their true purpose. If all Australian states join in
there could be as many as 1,000,000 students under part time
training by the end of 1997.
After his re-election in March Mr. Kennett immediately authorized a
pilot study programme to commence in several schools in view of
developing a state wide Cadet system by 1997.

(1) During late March the Federal
Government announced that the Australian Army would start
training Singapore Air Force helicopter pilots at the Army
Aviation Centre at Oakey, 150KM west of Brisbane where a
squadron of twelve super puma helicopters and about two hundred
and fifty service personnel and their families would be based.
Singapore forces already had flight training at several RAAF
bases and armored training at Shoalwater Bay, Queensland.
(2) The Federal Government announced that it was purchasing one
hundred special multi wheeled armored all terrain vehicles, for
the Army. These will be supplied by Canada and stationed in the
northern part of Australia. The government has also decided to
set up a part manufacturing programme for these vehicles in the
near future. It is expected that more than five hundred will be
produced within three years.
(3) The Labor Government lost the federal election in March and
were replaced by the Howard Conservative government. One of the
new governments first action was to instruct the Australian
Submarine Corporation to speed up the production of the Collins
class submarines. The production is presently running to the
original schedule but the government wants them as soon as
possible. The factory will be expanded and staff numbers
increased to achieve this.
(4) The frigate building programme in Melbourne is also to be
speeded up. So far the second frigate is operational and the
third is due to be launched this year. The government wants all
ten within three years.
(5) It appears that Australia has continued to purchase large
numbers of used but refurbished F111 fighter bombers from the
U.S.A. There are indications that the airforce now has around
280 F-111 aircraft at their disposal! This is an enormous number
in anyone's estimation and it is difficult to understand why
Australia would need such a large number of them.
(6) The ever increasing amount of sophisticated military
equipment is causing a serious shortage of skilled man power to
operate it, particularly in the airforce. To get around part of
the problem the armed services are offering positions to outside
contractors such experienced airline pilots and flight
engineers. Of course no one will go into such services for lower
wages so the services have agreed to pay such outsiders at
commercial rates and add a variety of benefits and perks to make
the new positions more attractive.
This means that an experienced pilot
contracted from outside the airforce could be paid three or four
times more than a regular careers airforce pilot of the same
rank. Obviously the urgency of obtaining the services of the new
staff outweighs the conflicts it will no doubt cause. It has
been rumored that should the need arise the U.S. government will
provide a large number of skilled personnel on a lease basis to
operate all the equipment should this prove necessary during a
time of emergency.
(7) Shortly after the new federal government came to power in
March new discussions began with the U.S. Government about the
establishment of a greater American military presence in
Australia. These discussions are still underway and are expected
to continue for most of 1996.
The U.S. government has asked
Australia to agree to the establishment of a major network of
military supply bases in Australia which will be stocked with
large quantities of munitions, spare parts and complete
equipment to fully support any American military operations in
the Asia/Pacific area. The U.S. government has promised
substantial investment in this project involving the joint
co-operation of Australian companies.
(8) The U.S. government has proposed that a major naval base be
built for their use at Darwin in the Northern Territory. It is
expected that the Australian government will agree to this
(9) The U.S. government has further requested the setting up of
training facilities in Australia at which American military
personnel can be field trained in all forms of warfare. This
would be in addition to the present airforce training facilities
already in operation.
(10) Apart from the new naval base at Darwin the U.S. government
has suggested they establish a substantial military presence in
the northern part of Australia. This will be discussed in
Washington in June, 1996.
(11) The new Australian Prime Minister, Mr. Howard, made it
clear in May 1996 that Australia must have wider and closer
co-operation with the U.S.A. "at every level."
(12) On the 11th June, 1996 the Australian government announced
that there would a major shake up of all military services with
a much greater emphasis placed on combat capability and
readiness than top heavy administration.

In March it was announced by the U.S. and Australian governments
that the top secret base at Pine Gap, Central Australia was being
expanded. A second above ground power station is now under
construction as well as a large number of houses for additional
staff. Normally Pine Gap has a staff of 400 to 500 at any one time.
This is being increased to around 1,200
this year. The reason given for the expansion was the need to keep a
close watch on the Asian area with particular attention being paid
to the development of economic espionage. The fact that such a
dubious reason was given in the first place is extremely unusual.
Perhaps odd would be a better
description. One wonders if the E.T.'s are also having redecoration

LAUNCH FACILITY TO BE BUILT NEAR DARWIN
On the 19th June it was announced that a new rocket launch facility
would be built near Darwin, Northern Territory. This will be
financed by Australian, Russian, U.S. and South East Asian money
(particularly from Thailand). Being close to the equator larger than
normal payloads can be launched.
Large Russian made rockets will be used
for this purpose. Initially these will be fully imported and then
part manufactured by the Australian Submarine Corporation in South
Australia together with the smaller Russian designed rocket delivery
systems they are planning to produce by 1997. It is envisaged that
the facility will launch hundreds of satellites for both civilian
and military purposes by the end of the decade.
Initially it was proposed that such a facility be built in the
northern part of Queensland but due to aboriginal land claims this
proposal was shelved. It is also important to note that the Darwin
space facilities would be close to the proposed new American naval
base and air station which would compliment the military operations

As of early 1996 the various State and Federal police forces
continue to expand their special operations groups and to train with
the military SAS. The excuse is till the same, to counter terrorist
activities that may occur during the Sydney Olympic Games in the
year 2000. Apart from these activities selected groups in these
police forces are being trained to search for weapons in readiness
for the impending anti-gun legislation which will be introduced
during the second half of 1996.
Since 1994 the police and the military have been conducting joint
counter-terrorist exercises of a new and rather sinister nature. The
make believe enemies are Australian citizens who start agitating on
the subjects of,
"foreign ownership of Australian
resources and business and foreign involvement in the Australian
It appears that the Anti-Terrorist Plan
has been modified to give emphasis to such possible civil
activities. These modifications also include insistence that the
government takes action to remove as many firearms as possible from
civilian hands. It is interesting to note that foreign ownership in
Australian business and resources is now above 90% and a large
proportion of that is in the hands of American investors.
The development of the private prison system has continued with some
speed since the beginning of 1996. In April the Victorian government
announced that a new women's prison would be built in 1996/97 and
operated by the "Correction Corporation of Australia" which is an
American owned company in competition with
It seems that the criticism of Wackenhut
Inc. has caused the government to share this profitable business
with others hungry for such opportunities. An additional men's
prison will be built at the same time and managed by the British
based company "Guard Force Ltd." which, in the main, is controlled
by American shareholders.

THE ATTACK ON
Unfortunately since 1987 Australia has been subjected to a series of
mass shootings perpetrated by supposed lone crazed individuals
wanting to get back at society. Each time such an atrocity has
occurred there has been a clamor to ban all guns held by the
The most recent shooting was perpetrated
at the tourist site of Port Arthur in Tasmania during April 1996
when thirty five tourists were killed by a wealthy 27 year old local
man using two stolen guns for no apparent reason.
Within hours a coordinated propaganda
campaign of unprecedented proportions was launched in the media,
aimed at the elimination of private gun ownership starting with the
Australia wide banning of all. self loading rifles and shotguns and
the restriction of ammunition sales.
The Federal Government was quick to seize the opportunity and
obtained prompt agreement from the states to ban various types of
weapons and demonize gun ownership in general. The result has been a
public uproar and the possibility of the federal coalition
government being seriously damaged by the eventual loss of seats in
it's grass root electorates.
This has not stopped the government who strangely suggest that they
do not care if they lose power as a result of their new extremist
policy. At this point the reader should refer to the extract of the
letter from Western Australia on Page 28 of this report. The
Australian government does not seem to be in control of the
Despite the noise and the government threats to ban all privately
owned firearms together with the incongruous sight of the new Prime
Minister, John Howard, addressing a large group of pro gun
demonstrators wearing a bulging bullet proof vest, the government
has a major problem. To understand this problem it is important to
take a short look at some of Australia's past history in relation to
the, ownership and use of firearms.
Since Captain Cook (the official British discoverer of Australia)
arrived at Botany Bay more than two hundred years ago, firearms have
been an important part of Australian society. They were used to
subdue hostile native, hunt for food, guard convicts and train new
settlers to defend the colony against the possible invasions from
France and Russia.
Also, to support all British Colonial objectives wherever such
support was deemed necessary. Remaining a Crown Colony until 1901
the founders of Australia were regularly involved in British
military affairs throughout the Empire. After federation and the
creation of quasi self rule in Australia the obligation remained and
it was not until the end of the second World War that Australian
allegiance to the British Empire began to fade in favor of the
Guns had played a vital role in the forging of a nation and the
support of a great empire, often at enormous individual cost. There
is an unquestionable tradition of gun ownership in Australia and an
ingrained sense that the right of such legitimate ownership
involving the defense of the home and nation should not be
challenged by anyone.
Thus it is difficult to understand why
the Australian government, which must have an appreciation of these
facts, has acted in such a high handed way and is telling a large
section of the Australian population to lay down it's arms. The Port
Arthur massacre is being used as the excuse to attempt the civilian
disarmament of the country, causing immediate and strong resistance
from several million Australians.
Even more puzzling is the assumption by
the government that following rushed legislation citizens will
simply hand in their guns for a small compensation payment. As only
three states in Australia have had any form of gun registration in
operation over the past twenty years there is no record of where all
the guns are.
Further in those states (Victoria, South Australia and Western
Australia) where registration was introduced in the 1980's it was an
accepted fact that only about 15% to 20% of the guns privately owned
at that time were registered in the first place. As for Queensland,
New South Wales, Tasmania and the Northern Territory no method of
registration was ever introduced so there is no way of locating the
many millions of guns in those areas.
To give the reader an idea of the magnitude of gun ownership in
Australia the Victoria Police Force estimated in 1995 that there was
approximately three guns for every man, woman and child in
Australia. With a population of just over 18,000,000 this means
there are around 54,000,000 guns in private hands and only a small
percentage of this number are recorded in only three states.
It is safe to say that it would be
totally impossible to confiscate even a small number of these
weapons without the full co-operation of the Australian public. It
is very unlikely that such co-operation will be given and the
government knows it.
So why are they intent on
turning this matter into a major political issue which is
already starting to threaten the very foundations of
democratic government in Australia?
Could it be that the pressure to
embark on such an impossible task is coming from outside the
Due to their lack of
understanding, could the future intended occupiers of
Australia, the representatives of the new world order, have
made a gross miscalculation of the Australian reaction to
The author feels that this is a decided
possibility and events could easily get out of control and produce a
major political backlash against these policies.
Another point of interest is that the Australian armed forces own
little more than 250,000 small arms. When this is compared with the
estimated 54,000,000 in the Australian community it pales into
insignificance. It also represents a very real threat against any
official organizations, either foreign or local which may decide to
use force to get it's way.
Like the United States an armed
population is a very big deterrent to totalitarian forces and more a
preserver of freedom than a destroyer of it. The Australian
government knows this yet relentlessly pursues it's ill advised
policies. Perhaps they have no choice. When they are told to jump
they say 'how high.'
It is also rumored that all present political parties in government
are agreeing with one another on the issue because their leadership
is aware of the danger facing the country and when something happens
they will be forced into a government of national unity anyway. It
certainly would explain the bizarre newspaper and TV images of all
the opposing party leaders, standing together, with their arms
around each others shoulders, like long lost brothers.
It seems apparent that Australia is being prepared to survive some
form of major disaster in the not too distant future. There is some
sort of timetable in existence pointing towards the end of the
The big question is what are
they expecting that can not be revealed to the public?
Could it be a cosmic cataclysm
involving a comet or asteroid striking the earth?
Are preparations being made with
the help of friendly extraterrestrials to resist an invasion
of inimical forces from outer space?
Is a climatic or seismic crisis
developing which would cause social disruption and war
throughout the world?
Nothing is sure, only that obvious and
massive preparations are being made to protect and secure the
Australian continent from a cataclysmic event. No doubt time will

ADDENDUM TO REPORT No 1
(REFER TO PAGES 9 AND 10)
On the 4th July, 1996 the Federal Government announced that new
restrictions would be placed on the number of immigrants allowed to
enter Australia. Family reunion will be eliminated as a reason for
automatic entry to Australia and emphasis will now be placed on
English language capabilities and personal skills.
Also immigrants will have to pay a bond
of A$30,000 to the government to ensure that they do not settle in
major cities but take up residence in rural areas and towns. Should
they move to a major city such as Sydney or Melbourne they would
forfeit the bond. By introducing such complex regulations the
government is expected to cut the rate of immigration by at least
THE NEW 'SHERGER'
On the 7th July, 1996 the Federal Government announced the
establishment of a new air base situated at the north west tip of
Cape York peninsular (the most northern point of Australia) near the
small mining town of Wieper. The base will have a three kilometer
runway and facilities for the accommodation of six hundred staff.
The completion date for this new
A$150,000,000 project is November, 1998. It is interesting to note
that due to the lack of man power the base will only have a
caretaker staff. All other personnel will be flown in during times
of need (see page 30 paragraph 6).
SPACE SHUTTLE (SEE PAGE 21
During the first week of July, 1996 Japan successfully tested their
first 1/3 scale model of their space shuttle by launching it from a
helicopter. It landed by remote control on the main Woomera airport
runway. A full scale prototype will now be constructed.

There were a few typos and things we felt were
mistakes, such as Aurora Borealis rather than Aurora Australis --
After long thought, it was decided to leave the mistakes as the
