Anzac Park West

By Pandy 15 July 2008 55

Sorry guys but I asked this question tonight in an other post.

Anzac Park West that was refurbished for the AFP until they pulled the pin: who occupied it before?

I have heard that it had a “secure area” in the basement. So was it part of the intelligence community in the past or what? Was it linked to ASIO?

BTW is the new ASIO building not being built alongside it?

Why am I asking this question? mmmm you don’t need to know OK?

What’s Your opinion?

Yep I worked in Defence from 94 to 97 and it was a Defence building during that time… had Security and a few others in there.

We took a journo down the ones at Emu Ridge in 1992-93 and we ended up on the front page of the saturday Canberra Times. They called us the Sewer Rats and stated that we played with danger when we played in the drains.

at least it wasn’t the one under charnwood shops – entrance is at the overflow on ginninderra creek.

Looks like you have had some good adventures!

I think the word you are looking for is “allegedly”.

Yep, remember it well, as I grew up in MacGregor. Riding out to the old sewerage plant with some of the old crumbling buildings and stuff that used to be out there. I remember throwing rocks through the roof of one of the old underground tanks – I’m suprised now that no one was ever seriously hurt out there.

p1 – some interesting places on your google maps. Looks like you have had some good adventures!

Bows and Arrows are about the only fun toys that are still legal aren’t they?

Kids still play that game, it is just more challenging for them now.
