Welcome Trees,
How old are you? Which part of Melbourne are you located in?
The current restrictions means most meetups are on the back-burner.

Soon cant come soon enough. I must admit I've been squeezing the odd drain or something into my essential exercise. Stick around though. Who knows.

Box Hill? Yeah it's been like that for a while. Was a good place to chill a few years back.

I think everyone and their mother has done Bradmill. It's the stereotypical go to for anyone, not even urbex related people. It had some brief security changes over the years but overall hasn't changed too much over the years.

Yeah nice, good to know. Any tips of getting in? I saw on google streetview a black metal fence surrounding the whole area, should be too hard to scale :)

Luckily for you, as far as I’m aware, the fence you’re referring to looks like it has been driven through by a car or something as there are several panels missing. You can walk right on in my friend.

Man. You've been given far more details than many who ask for information. It almost defeats the point of an explore if everything is mapped out for you. Bradmill isn't too difficult to figure out. Go for a look see.

Hi,
New to UEGA but I've been draining a couple times now. I know all the big ones (Maze, Dungeon, stairway) but I am trying to find some other ones (69er, city tunnel, etc.(. Also, in a CC video there was an aweome picture of this pillar underground in a huge chamber with lights. Anyone know if its in melb?

Thanks :D

It's a certain type of person that goes in a drain. They tend to drink beer and wear flannel and live somewhere on the east side of Melbourne.
