If it's not a bunker, it has to be a fort

Published July 15, 2012

When we were watching Mission Impossible II, Mr C and I were very taken with the fort that featured at the very end of the movie. Whilst we were meant to be enjoying the big motorcycle sequence, we were busy saying “Where is that? We need to live there.”

Because, whilst an underground bunker is the ideal, there is also a lot to be said for living on a bit of an island, in a military designed fort.

The fort in question, in the movie, is Bare Island in Sydney.

There don’t seem to be many pictures of the inside of the fort, but I have been to one before and know what that’s about. I’m also thinking I need to go visit another one soon! Love forts!

The only major problems that are standing in the way of this Bare Island plan are twofold. Aside from the fact that it’s on the other side of the world, and not exactly for private use, it’s also a popular place for scuba divers, and there are some rather terrifying snakes.
