Constructed in 1942 to provide protection for Port Kembla from enemy shipping and submarines. Two BL 9.2 inch Mk X gun emplacements with related underground facilities were constructed near Drummond, Wollongong.

Today the site is used as a mushroom farm. I was told that if you are polite with the owners they will let you in to have a look.
