Alright /x/ I'm gonna let you in on easily the spookiest place in Australia. Far away from our cities sitting at the edge of one of our most beautiful rainforests is a place called Kalkajaka. In the Aboriginal tounge this translates to both 'Place of Spears' and 'Place of Death'. Something to know about the aboriginal people is they tell of the creation of the landscapes by spirits in something they call the Dreamtime. A special or sacred site has a story.
The story is of a 'man', being similar to a medicine man and also a chameleon, who had the taste for human flesh. He killed and ate a young chief and so was banished and fled to the mountains, occasionally surfacing to eat a human or two from his own tribe. On his last venture out of the mountains he turned into a goanna to escape his angry fellow tribe members and had the misfortune of being struck by lightening. Being no ordinary goanna he exploded and left large piles of charred rock everywhere.
This is a really odd story even by Aboriginal standards. Cannibalism is pretty much unheard of with these people. As is the idea of 'turning into a Goanna' which is basically a giant lizard.
Is just a ancient lizzie.
Reptilians are among us just be careful and you can avoid them.
I'm sure a lot of you already know where I am going with this but <cont>
The rocks here are very unusual. If you will, look up Cooktown Australia on google maps - then look Southwest about 100km and you will see it. Immediately you will notice that the colour of the rocks, the lay of the stone, everything about this place appears foreign. If you are to drive to the location, you will notice that all of the stones are in pieces like they were blasted out of a giant Quarry. The official stance is this is a volcanic rock from lava. However - This shit is granite. If you see natural Granite mountains formed from volcanos you will know that there is mass amounts of FUSED rock. This place is not right.
There have been consistent disappearances in this place, both of people and of cattle.
There are two stories that have come from this place that stand out the most. One, of a young police officer that escaped a cave and abondoned another police officer talking jibberish and basically shitting himself after going into one of the caves.
Second, a man that did go into the caves and came back out - so far the only one I have been able to find reports a strong smell of sulfur deep inside to the point of him feeling sick and choking. Read link for more.
This time next year /x/ bro's, I'm going in.
Given the history of this place, I might not make it back but I have serious suspicions that this is an entry point into a deep subterranean Reptilian base. The stone was dumped out a long time ago. Any Aussie bro's not too fond of life want to join me for a real challenging journey into the black abyss below? Also, thoughts.
Something else I thought I would mention about this place. Northern Queenslanders are pretty well known cave explorers, hikers, travellers. There are no other cave systems that have been found in the area that have not been explored and documented.... except for this one. Nothing. Only a few reports of missing persons and weird stories. Lights have been seen here, as well as a couple of reports of creatures walking about. It's spook central. Has anyone else come across places like this in other parts of the globe?
What do you know about them?
This is very personal to me. My very first memory as a child is of a UFO, I shit you not. I remember sensing reptiles on board... just this foreboding presence. The memory has stuck with me to this day. There is some connection and I want to find out what it is.
You will die. Your last moments will be filled with excruciating pain and horror. To enter those caves is a death sentence.
If you accept this, then go for it. But don't fancy yourself some intrepid explorer when you are literally committing suicide.
Unless you are 100%
If this is legit (I have my doubts but it's enough to listen to it), and this is a legit site then there will be smooth rock, leading to a silver door.
The guy who made it out, reported smooth granite walls. I would have to find these.
I have a year to prepare. I wonder if there would be a way to get a live feed streaming as I go in. See if what I think is in there, is, infact, in there and I am able to get a feed to you here. Maybe we will get something.
>muh bunch of strange rocks near a cave prob formed naturally
>dumb primitive natives have spooky story about it
>I'm gonna go explore but I'm gonna get spooked and maybe die
You really think nobody like you has explored there, and the reason they didn't tell anyone is because it's empty and they realized how stupid they were?
>Unnatural Rock formation with only scientific theories of origin
>Natives feared the place even naming it a place of death - For good reason
>Collection of stories including police reports of disappearances and deaths including those of skeptical Gold Hungry settlers, a police officer, a caver, livestock
>Mysterious sightings reported on site
There is a reason I am making a thread about this place on this board. Look into it more I am not making this shit up or exaggerating
Good topview of the place. It stands in stark contract to the entire landscape around it. It is the only mound of its kind in Australia. The rocks are burnt black, yet nowhere else in the region has burned black rocks. Again, this is typical of quarry explosions. Mining. Yet no mine or quarry has ever existed here.
Oh shit...yeah the Pilliga is devils lands man. Take a bow or something if you go in there seriously. Been interested since hearing the Bongo story, but talked to a few abos who say the bad ones live there.
I've driven through a few times and seen some of the attractions such as the sandstone caves, but I've never experienced much else of it. Yeah I would definitely be prepared if I ever went exploring there.
I'm in texas, otherwise I might. However, I'd want to take some weapons and also breathing apparatuses. Even if it's a suicide mission we might as well give it a try, eh?
Also, my cultural/religious belief makes me wonder if a bunch of malevolent jinn have made their home in those caves?
Save up some cash, got a year come for a vaca.
My brother has already agree'd to join me.
The guy who went in and made it out said he was down there for 5 hours. That is a huge distance hey. Might be good to have fixed lights set though to help navigation.
Tbh I'm extremely interested in paranormal phenomena but it would be really difficult for me to just uproot in a year and come to Australia. I wish I could though. Maybe you could do a couple of preliminary excursions to set up lights and signal repeaters so you could transmit wirelessly?
Yeah that isn't a small trip to be sure.
Well, I will be looking to go in there around the 4/1/17 so look for my thread then. Going to see if I can find any experienced cavers in that region to join as well so there is someone who knows their stuff coming along. Will film and photograph as I go, I am thinking that livestream might be a bit difficult.
Well, regardless of if there is or is not something down there, we can take part in exploring one of the few uncharted caves left in QLD. There is something to that all on its own. Do you have caving experience?
Here is my list of expected hazards.
Snakes, spiders, slippery rock floor, pittfalls, navigational risks, gasses, very rare but still potential cave-ins. Have I missed anything?
Only other potential threat is actual dangerous unknown scalies waiting down there. But then, death by something fantastical and mysterious beats dying in bed from a heart attack or diabetes or something. Why are we alive. To live boring lives?
Perhaps because literal scores of people have gone down there and never returned in recorded history, and likely hapless more abos before colonization? Or the harrowing reports of people who have came back/even gotten close?
Something spooky rests below that mountain, and you all are going to waltz into its' lair.
If you're determined, make the group as big as possible. Arm yourselves, bring powerful flashlights and canned food. Securing an abo guide or something couldn't hurt.
On the upside if you guys are able to map the caves and come out alive, you'll gain renown.
Oh and for the record, want to keep /x/ posted every step of the way. They can bear witness to whatever it is we find down there. Either it'll be interesting, or one of the greatest threads in /x/ history.
If you're going take gas masks, oxygen tanks, and hazmat suits with you, along with the obligatory packed lunches and flashlights (with backups and backups for your backups).
If some guy said there was sulphur down there and vomited upon return, it's likely there's also some poison gases down there too. Probably the reason no one came back. Hell, maybe they even make you hallucinate so that the few who did come back had some weird stories to tell.
Sulphur Dioxide doesn't make you hallucinate. It does however, kill you in large quantities. I will make sure everyone has a acid-grade gas mask each, torches with plenty of spare batteries, water, dried food pouches etc. It is going to be a proper exploration with full prep.
The guy said he heard moaning down there, and the rock walls were smooth with a fairly flat floor. I don't think he was hearing things. Isn't it interesting how his mind turned to fear of giant snakes on his way up.
I thought the spookiest place was Summer Bay, the caravan park?!
Seriaas, heard a lot of disconcerting things about that Ayer's rock...imagine there must be a lot of v remote, desolate places it's such a vast country.
There is a town pretty close the Ayers rock that is known as Australia's UFO capitol. It isn't that far from this place maybe another 6 hours on the road.
But yeah its a big-ass continent, much of it especially the desert is largely underpopulated. Hear all sorts of stories from tight lipped truckies over a beer.
Yeah it was. Even worse his Nephew decided to 'take up the family legacy' and killed people himself. You don't get that many psycho's like that here though. Mostly its people who work too long in slaughter houses that go a bit funny.
huh, excerpt from the guy who got out's story "A huge bat beat its wings against me as it passed, however I forced myself on, to push further. "
Cave bats here are typically small, except for one. The Ghost bat, which is incredibly rare.
jesus chriiist. did they find the guy or is it still a big hunt for them? not many horrors put the shits up me, but that one f
did. second one not so much, but now you say it's real....bloody hell, literally. any links?
Attached pic of his nephew. They got him.
>In 2012, Ivan Milat's great-nephew Matthew Milat and his friend Cohen Klein (both aged 19 at the time of their sentencing) were sentenced to 43 years and 32 years in prison respectively, for murdering David Auchterlonie on his 17th birthday with an axe at the Belanglo State Forest in 2010. Matthew Milat struck Auchterlonie with the double-headed axe as Klein recorded the attack with a mobile phone. This was the same forest where Ivan Milat had buried his victims.
Fucking axe murderer. Little cunt he is.
>The guy said he heard moaning down there, and the rock walls were smooth with a fairly flat floor. I don't think he was hearing things. Isn't it interesting how his mind turned to fear of giant snakes on his way up.
>In addition, the hot air moving through underground passages and abysses creates eerie sounds that have variously been described as sounding like moaning, screaming, crying, wailing, and deep hissing.
>hears moaning from the movement of hot air deep in the cave system
>heres the hssing sound created by this movement as well
>panicked and frenzied mind immediately thinks of snakes, even giant ones, as to be causing such sounds
> A rotten stench also reportedly seeps from somewhere far below the surface from time to time
Dangerous sulfuric acid that must be in extreme quantites down there which is why the people who went in ill prepared never got out.
All this including the volcanic nature of the rocks themselves seems to suggest that deep below this surface feature lies some geological thing, I'm not a geologist so I don't know though.
There is no tectonic or volcanic activity in Australia. There hasn't been for a long time.
Agree about the poisonous air however believe this has more to do with bat droppings.
I am skeptical that there is any air movement down there hence the buildup of gas. Can't have both.
best cities in the world m8
The rainbow serpent story is odd yeah, but think about this story.
Eats people including his own people
Lives under mountain
Turns into Giant Reptile
Gets hit by Lightning and makes a huge explosion
It's just a weird tale for them
Creepy? Really? Look I was just going to cut you a little.....
I'm joking, honestly I've done a lot of research on black mountain but have lived too far away to actually visit. Plus I've never had anyone to go there with as all my friends don't believe in any kind of paranormal things.
But that's cool, I'll just visit on my own.
Hey guys OP here.
For those of you silly enough to want to come along I have compiled a list of items you will need to bring. And just to be clear, if you are missing one or more of these items you will NOT be joining us on this expedition.
1 x Headtorch + Spare batteries
1x Penlight + Spare Batteries
1x Pair of Leather boots that have good grip
1 x Backpack with food rations and at least 2L of water
20x Glowsticks - 4 hour lasting
1x Absail harness
1x Carbon Filter gas mask
Just to highlight, these cave systems given their history are likely the most dangerous cave systems in Australia. If you join, you will be following my directions to the letter. I do not want to have you come along on this trip then die on me and have me explain to the police what happened. On top of all that, you must have relative fitness and be able to lift your own body weight. If all that checks out, well then we are in business. If what I think is down there, is in fact down there then it might not matter but why increase risk.
Bring a fucking gun, you stupid fucking faggot.
>oh right, you don't have the right license for it
Have fun knife fighting with a fucking otherworldly abomination you stupid fuck. At least sneak a shotty out there.
Fire a gun, deep underground with potential gas, rock cave-in's, and ricochets. Not the best plan I have ever heard desu.
I will be bringing a hunting bow however if it is practical to secure on my back.
Timing it for 4 hours in and out.
Camp the night away from site, return in the morning. With marked out passages it will make for a much quicker crawl to deeper locations. After that, a reassess. There are multiple cave entries around this place and apparently some descend quickly. My personal aim is to move as close to center of the cave system and maximum depth.
Actually apparently they are quite hot inside so dehydration is more of the issue.
Ill take a GoPro. Light, easily mounted, long film life etc. Unless you have a better suggestion? I do need it to be hands-free though.
I have heard enough to have a reasonable suspicion. Especially hearing it first hand from locals. I won't go into much detail except what is to already to be found on the net.
I have found a camera that projects both infared and ultraviolet light giving a full spectrum. Given over a dozen people have died in there, I may just capture something ghosty. There is also a high probability I will come across a few decomposed human bodies. Spoopy skeletons.
Firing a gun underground wouldn't really be that dangerous, except if it was in too small of a space you'd absolutely fuck up your ears, possibly permanently, the extent of which determined by the acoustics of the environment and the gun.
But no guns allowed in straya anyway so meh
I am tempted to take both of these. Could be extremely useful to have thermal.
Look if a Reptilian presents itself with intention to have a nibble, a gun would probably not do much to stop it. A knife is faster and better in close spaces anyways.
Gold Coast faggot here.
If the invite to accompany was legit, I'd like to sign up. How do I go about that?
I'm a complete skeptic, but would like to examine the rocks and take a few samples to look at.
My bad, I didn't see.
I have everything listed here. I have a few extra masks I can bring with a few extra filters.
I'm also a pretty good survivalist so we could camp out over night for shits and gigs.
Tbh i would rather be the person up top with radio and walky talky keeping in contact with those that are down there
And its wrist stregth that is my problem. Ive worked on it but it hasnt improved
You study geology? Well mate youll be well welcome to come along. Had much experience caving?
Actually that'd be pretty good to have a safety person up top.
Yes that's the risk. I am telling myself the reason is because of Gas but then who knows. There is a official report of a runaway convict being tracked by police to a cave here and his tracks just stop, dissapear. He hasn't been seen or heard of since.
Well I was thinking that if i were up top then somehow you could stream it up to me and i stream it from a laptop on some site. Or somehow send photos from deep cave to me. I dunno just a thought and i clearly dont know technology
Let me do some searching on tech that could transmit like that and get back to you.
I certainly would love to live feed this, even for the entertainment of /x/. Coming across human remains, ghosts, creepy cracks in the earth, noises, reptiles, the unknown depths. Will make one hell of a entertaining live stream.
Just privately, I don't go to uni for it or anything, although I probably should as I'd say I have a decent knowledge.
Nah, only in the sense that I've done walking tours so I could snag a few samples or two.
But I can get the experience if that's necessary.
It would be haha itd be a bit weird for some random stranger to walk past and see some girl and her set up at an entrance of a cave.
I have a feeling itll involve alot of cable which would be alot of $$
Speaking of, would we get in trouble for actually going in there? Or is it pretty much free reign at your own risk?
Just had a thought.
These black rocks trap a lot of heat. That heat would be extremely advantageous to a cold blooded animal even deeper under the earth.
If they are down there, they probably come up at night to warm themselves on the still hot rocks.
Could be worth night 1 camping quietly up top, night vision cameras at hand.
Vicfag here. Just finished reading through the thread; haven't gone into the extra material yet, but I'm potentially interested in the trip.
I understand technology, and have been thinking up ideas for a solution to live streaming it. The technology exists, and I reckon there'd be a few viable options.
OP, have you considered making a shared Google Docs for collaboration where those involved can put ideas and the like?
I'm happy to collaborate with people who are joining on the trip, after I at least meet them on Skype cam. Of course I'm open to idea's too. For example, got a great tip already. Instead of using spraypaint to mark out the walls, use reflective tape on pegs. Easy to remove each one on the way back as to not walk in circles.
Absolutely. I'm not in a position to Skype at the moment, but I've noted down your address and will add you when I can.
I feel it will be valuable centralising information from all these different sources, linking things up, and drawing a bigger picture.
Additionally, all involved will have a uniform understanding of the destination and objective.
A motto which is quite suitable for planning things like this:
>If you fail to prepare, prepare to fail.
- What's the budget, OP?
- Does anyone signing up for this believe you'll find something down there?
- If so, what do you think you'll find, and what convinced you?
Honestly, I am not sure yet. From what I heard there are openings all around the base with a particularly big one somewhere in the South-West Corner.
Anon I hope your not thinking of going there alone.
>My personal aim is to move as close to center of the cave system and maximum depth.
Yes! Right into the bowels of the lair, where they won't hear your death screams.
It's like surprise delivery pizza that you don't have to pay for.
Are you retarded. Everyone has a gun here we're mostly fucking farmers.
We just can't have assault rifles and shit.
And honestly, why the fuck would anyone need an assault rifle anyway.
>inb4 mah freedums
>inb4 home defence
Who's gonna raid ya house? North Korea?
Yeah no you are right. Was going to spray paint walls to mark way in and out but that would actually be a terrible thing to do, hence moving to idea of reflective tape in stakes.
Also, gun in tunnel is fucking stupid.
OP here, I concur. You first
Camping is good idea, as a matter of fact maybe doing dry runs before going in too deep.
Can you bring flare gun and flares? Bring axe.
Also, can you tie ropes as you go in? Like cave divers would, this is the safest way to find your way out, since gps or satellite or cell won't work through those dense rocks.
Good idea. It would certainly help with expenses.
Could write up a really good presentation for the trip, never used gofundme before. Might be the difference between upload after event, to live stream.
I'll tie my dick to the mouth of the cave, that way, I won't run out. Also, just have to think sexy thoughts, and rapid expansion will punch a easy-to-exit hole into the side of the mountain.
I'm going up this week to make some video? Whose coming? I also want to stop at the pyramids at Gympie and a few ancient egyption places on the way up.
I'm located in Toowoomba, I'm 27 retired (cos im a rich cunt) and have nothing else to do.
I want to leave in the next few days, will probably go up an back within a week. I have a car. Will camp on the side of the road, so all you need is a swag and half of the fuel money.
Send me a text, if you're in SEQ and are keen to leave in the next few days.

What about a couple threads every so often, maybe giving us updates on equipment you've obtained, plans you've made, etc? That way we can continue having hope that you will deliver.
I don't get what all the fuss about Pilliga is, ever since I was able to walk I've been around there shooting shit and haven't come across more this one or two creepy things.
1. Clear area of land for about 500m, in the middle is a grouping of trees and shrub. Friend, dad and friends dad were spread around the paddock, friend saw some hairy homeless looking guy in the field, very beardy, figured fuck this trespassers day and shot at it, I was in the opposite side and see this huge thing running across the field holding its leg and fucking screaming in agony. Think chewbacca but more human.
2. We were hiking around deep innawoods and started seeing symbols on the trees, one has atleast 20 dead magpies at the bottom. Would pass it off as kids but no one would walk that deep innapilliga. We ended up coming across a cave that smelt like a carton of milk after sitting in your bin for a week mid summer.
It's not scary, nothing takes well to being shot by two 30.06's
Dismissing what others believe to be real isn't good for getting people on-side.
There are plenty of stories of ancient Egyptian artifacts and anomalies in Australia, so what makes them any less real than old stories from similarly unverifiable websites/sources about a mountain?
>The rocks here are very unusual. If you will, look up Cooktown Australia on google maps - then look Southwest about 100km and you will see it.
Can anyone help with this? Can't find shit captain.
Did any of you cunts ever watch that show Jeopardy with the Scottish bastards in it? Sounds like you're going to end up like them if you do embark on such a trip.
Here's another story from a guy who went in there with some m8s. He encountered some scary shit nearby while camping:
>Around seven o'clock, night had descended abruptly and unannounced, as is usual in the tropics, and all we could discern in the light of our little gas lantern was the blurred shadows of trees forming a seemingly impenetrable mass. For the next two hours we chatted. Here and there we stopped and listened to the nighttime forest, and watched silently the dark wall of boulders looming over our tent. The feeling of this slumbering landscape's ancient history had crept over us and we awaited excitedly any unusual event that would lend credence to the legends of Mount Kalkajaka. Experience told us to expect a fairly uneventful night. Little did we know how wrong we were.
>Around ten o'clock a strong wind picked up and down from the tree tops came a cracking sound. We crawled inside the tent, lay down on our mats and stared at the dark fabric, straining to hear every possible sound. The nighttime cries of the primeval forest were frightening at first, full of odd wails mingled with horrific laughter and the occasional crunch of a branch broken off by the wind. It was enough to make your soul shiver. But little by little we got used to it and began to fall asleep when a sudden hush fell over everything. Not only did the wind cease but the voices of animals and night birds were gone. The silence was deafening. Danny and I looked at each other in surprise. We began joking, saying it must be the boogyman, when we heard stone crumbling from the rock above us. As if something was slowly crawling out of the mountain. It sounded quite close and we thought it might be an animal. Maybe a rock wallaby. But once it climbed all the way down, what we heard from the bushes and dried up leaves was the sound of human steps. A crawling animal would not sound like this. This was clearly a human walking.
The locals warn all explorers: "Anyone set on unraveling the mystery of the mountain must be well organized and prepared to tackle the most awful dangers – such as facing a giant python."
>such as facing a giant python
The locals know
Why don't we just go to Black Mountain in Canberra instead?
In Australia, giant python means giant fucking python.
Good luck, guys. Let us hope that you don't end up like Kenny Veach, the guy who became obsessed with a mysterious "M-shaped cave" he had found near Las Vegas and disappeared trying to find it again.
This was his last video:
You can be the up-top dude!
