There is a large underground "bunker" under Spencer Street Railway Station. Part of it was used as a storage area and the other part was used as a pistol shooting range for the Victorian Police.

It is believed that this large underground "bunker" was an old WW2 air raid shelter. It is estimated that it could hold a few thousand people. 

It is reported to be similar to the underground "bunker" that is believed to have been located near Dights Falls on the Yarra River at Abbotsford in Melbourne.
