During the Second World War, Darwin bore the brunt of all of Japan’s wrath and has undergone severe destruction during these years. After one such bombing by the Japanese wherein the Allied Forces’ energy supply was annihilated by the opposing force, it was decided that underground tunnels are in order. The WWII Oil Storage Tunnels are nothing but that-long unwinding passages where fuel and oil necessary for battle were stored, away from the reach of the Japanese bombs. Although the idea was fool-proof, the construction wasn’t. In 1945, a few tunnels had a leak as a result of which water started pouring into the tunnels. Since they were coated with steel, corrosion set in and soon the tunnels had to be rendered defunct. Today, only a few tunnels are open to public!
