Search on for Bundaberg WWII bunkers - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) The Defence Department will use the latest technology to try and confirm if there are any World War II bunkers under Bundaberg city airport. The Bundaberg City Council says the military will use a ground penetration radar and magnetic sub-surface equipment to look for bunkers in airport land. It has long been local legend that there are underground bunkers left from the war at the airport. Mayor Kay McDuff says they should know by the end of the year if there is anything there. "These are very advanced technologies and no doubt will come at quite a cost," she said. "All I can say is that the council is very appreciative of their response and we hope that we will have some results from their work by the middle of the year."
