Top Secret sites: one of the world's biggest spy bases is located in the middle of Australia at Pine Gap, NT.
AUSTRALIA's most secret sites are hidden well away from prying eyes, usually far from major population areas. Top Secret sites: one of the world's biggest spy bases is located in the middle of central Australia at Pine Gap, NT. As Australian and British foreign and defence officials meet in Perth today to discuss stronger military ties, here's our virtual tour of Australia's most secret military and government sites.
ASIO, ACT (spy agency HQ) The new Australian Security Intelligence Organisation HQ in Canberra will house Australia's national security service, responsible for protecting us from espionage, sabotage, attacks on the Australian defence system and terrorism. Top secret sites: Campbell Barracks in Swanbourne, the base of the Australian Special Air Service. Campbell Barracks, WA (SAS HQ) Located in suburban Perth, the low-key army base in Swanbourne, has been the base of the Australian Special Air Service (SAS) since the Regiment was established in 1957. Christmas Island, Indian Ocean (detention centre) Home to 1500 Australian citizens, mostly of Chinese ethnicity, Christmas Island was a thriving phosphate producer before transfer to Australian sovereignty in 1957.
Top Secret sites: Australian Defence Satellite Communications Ground Station at Kojarena, WA. Kojarena, WA (defence satellite station) The Australian Defence Satellite Communications Ground Station is located at Kojarena, 30 km east of Geraldton.
Maralinga, SA (nuclear test site) The ancient home of the Maralinga Tjarutja indigenous people, Maralinga was the site of seven secret British nuclear tests in the 1950s, with four fission bomb tests followed by three tests of triggering mechanisms.
Nauru, Pacific Ocean (detention centre) Originally opened in 2001 to take people rescued by the MV Tampa, the detention centre on the tiny island of Nauru was built to house 1200 asylum seekers in return for a pledge of $30m in development funds. Nurrungar, SA (ballistic missile control) Located on the edge of Island Lagoon, approximately 15 km south of Woomera, Nurrungar was run by the ADF and the US Air Force from 1969 to 1999.
Pine Gap, NT (US listening post) Probably the best known secret installation in Australia, Pine Gap near Alice Springs is one of the biggest ECHELON signals intelligence facilities in the world, with an estimated 1000 employees.
Swan Island, VIC (special forces) The Department of Defence does not discuss what goes on at Swan Island, and information on the facility is not found on any government website.
Scherger, QLD (detention centre) Villawood and Darwin are well known immigration detention centres, but did you know that up to 600 asylum seekers at any one time are housed at a facility at RAAF Scherger in Far North Queensland?
Symonston, ACT (government panic room) Protected by heavy gates, security fences and an array of CCTV cameras on a nondescript Canberra industrial estate, the main purpose of the classified facility at Symonston is believed to be to provide an alternative communications facility for the Australian government. Top Secret sites: fast jets and visiting bombers are housed at RAAF Tindal, near Katherine, NT. Tindal, NT (fast jets, stealth bombers) Located near Katherine in the NT, RAAF Tindal houses the RAAF's fast jets outside the cyclone zone at a site easy to defend against external attack. Woomera, SA (weapons tests, drones) The Woomera Test Range in South Australia is a large weapons testing range operated by the RAAF, 500km northwest of Adelaide. Top Secret sites: British stealth drone bomber Taranis, undergoing testing in the Australian outback in early-2013. Woomera is the most likely test site for new British stealth drone Taranis, which will be conducting outback test flights in early 2013.

A NOTE ABOUT RELEVANT ADVERTISING: We collect information about the content (including ads) you use across this site and use it to make both advertising and content more relevant to you on our network and other sites. For those not versed in the minutiae of comic books, Marvel Entertainment's Secret Wars is a potentially confounding proposition.
The opening of Secret Wars is actually the ending of a storyline that's been running in the New Avengers series since the end of 2013.

Does this mean that he 33 cancelled comics take place on one of the worlds that gets destroyed? Wait — if 33 comics are cancelled for Secret Wars, what are these banners going to appear on?
Because comic book stores, like nature, apparently abhor a vacuum, Marvel has announced more than 30 new series to replace the titles that are disappearing. It's uncertain at this point whether more new titles will be announced for future months.
We kindly ask everyone to take a look at the new rules and upload the material in compliance with them. THE CLAIM: Curl Secret is a revolutionary new styler that gives you a “perfect curl” every time. The only work you have to do prep the piece of hair, place it in the device and clamp it shut. The most important step to stress when using the product is having the curl chamber side of the device always face your head. The only buyer we'd be hesitant to recommend Curl Secret to are those naturally gifted with the curling wand. Curl Secret not only changed the way we curl our hair, but better yet, changed who can curl their hair.
Curl Secret is currently available at ULTA stores, and coming soon to drugstores nationwide. Having appeared on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swim Suit Issue, starring in the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and being featured in the pages of GQ, Maxim, Glamour and Vogue (to name a few), Miller is regarded as one of the top super models in the world. Congratulations, Marisa; you’ve joined the likes of Lil’ Wayne, Erin Andrews and Justin Timberlake as a “Big Cheese!” If the Packers make it to the Super Bowl again this year you’re more than welcome to cover all the action for us right here on! ASIO officers have similar powers to the UK's Security Service (M15), and do not carry guns.
Most training takes place at Bindoon army base, northeast of Perth, which includes live-fire ranges, training areas and an SAS mock-up area with 'embassy' building and sniper towers, but is impossible to find on Google Maps. Since the MV Tampa controversy in 2001, the island has been the primary goal of asylum seekers attempting to enter Australia. It is operated by the ADF Defence Signals Division, and houses five radomes and eight satellite antennas linked to a worldwide satellite communication signals interception system that is mainly operated by the US and UK. Closed by Kevin Rudd in December 2007, the camp was reopened by the Gillard government in August 2012 to process record numbers of asylum seekers arriving by boat. Holt is located 6km north of Exmouth, which was built to provide support to the base and house dependent families of US Navy personnel. It provided early detection of missile launches and nuclear detonations via US satellites in geostationary orbits. A former US National Security employee who worked at Pine Gap has claimed that the facility is run by the CIA.
It is believed that Australia's Special Forces carry out counter terrorism training here on a base shared with the Secret Intelligence Service. One of three 'bare bases' in the tropics run by skeleton crews, Scherger is set up to house 1400 personnel and 40 aircraft if Australia ever gets into a shooting war with one of our northern neighbours. A key launching point for the Australian-led intervention in East Timor in 1999, the base is also rumoured to host US stealth spy planes. A prohibited area off-limits to the public, the range was set up by Britain and Australia in 1946 and was the site for seven nuclear tests between 1955 and 1963 as well as tests for a wide range of conventional weapons before the Australian-Anglo joint project ended in 1980.

These celebs love a good selfie - and what could be better than posing up with some of Australia’s most beloved animals?
That is one of three brandings for series that will be tying into the Secret Wars event in one way or another. These new series will take place in the various alternate realities that make up the new Battleworld, and launch from May throughout the summer.
If nothing else, no Civil War comic book has been announced yet, and that was one of the first teases released for Secret Wars last year. If September brings a reboot, then there's a real ground zero for everyone to start with.
It features an automatic curl chamber draws the hair in, heats, holds, and times it, creating any type of curl on any type of hair.
From dramatic, last second wins, to blowouts where the outcome was never in question, the green and gold have shown they can do it all. But, as we alluded to earlier, Miller’s incredible looks only tell a small part of her story. Opened in 2006, the Immigration Detention Centre contains approximately 800 beds, and cost $400m, double the estimated budget.
Native title was handed back to the traditional owners in January 1987 and efforts were made to clean up the site before resettling the land in 1995. The base provides very low frequency (VLF) radio transmission to US and Royal Australian Navy ships and submarines in the Pacific and Indian Oceans and is the most powerful transmission station in the Southern Hemisphere. Pine Gap controls American spy satellites as they fly over China, North Korea, Afghanistan and the Middle East. After a long period when it was effectively abandoned, the range is currently used for ADF trials and leased to foreign militaries. It also explains how you can access or seek correction of your personal information, how you can complain about a breach of the Australian Privacy Principles and how we will deal with a complaint of that nature.
Why start with a temporary version of events with a distorted version of characters that's different than they appear elsewhere in pop culture? And in the highly unlikely possibility that there isn't a reboot, there will always be collected editions and digital back issues to fall back on for the full story of the Marvel Universe. All other people have a nice time watching!Who are the celebrities and what does a€?nudea€? mean, you can find on Wikipedia. The timing feature takes away the guessing game as to how long it takes to achieve the type curl you're after, and unlike regular curling irons, the chamber heats the hair from both sides and is coated with a ceramic finish, resulting in strong, more polished finish. If this occurs, an automatic sensor will detect the tangle, release your hair, and turn down the heat to avoid any damage. So, it’s only fitting that this week’s Big Cheese is someone who’s just as multi-dimensional as the team we all love. A huge football fan, Miller was hired by the NFL to be an official spokesperson for the 2010-2011 season. Next, we clamped the device shut, triggering it to suck the strand into the chamber, making it disappear with no tangles or tugs.
Miller continued her work with the NFL through the playoffs, joyfully watching the Packers march to the Super Bowl Championship. In 5-10 seconds, we heard a beeping noise, which alerted us it was time to release the strand.
