The Bankstown Remote Receiving building was a semi-underground concrete reinforced building located at Picnic Point National Park near today's TransGrid South Sydney substation beside the George's River. It was located in the Lewis Gordon Estate in the Parish of Bankstown, County of Cumberland. The Bankstown Remote Receiving Building worked in conjunction with 1 Fighter Sector Headquarters bunker which was located just over 4 miles away.

According to some local residents the bunker still exists. Does anyone know whether that is true?
