Two years ago, while trawling the net, we discovered a short reference to a secret underground chamber beneath Hindley Street in the north-western corner of Adelaide. Rumoured to be gigantic in size, roughly 100 meters by 50 meters, it apparently ran under Hindley Street all the way down Leigh Street.
