Unbeknownst to locals and under their feet you will find Lake St James, a mysterious underground water body below the Macquarie St station, where albino eels are said to lurk and secret military training ops are held in the darkness for weeks on end. Apparently. The city is indeed riddled with tunnels as a result of early rail construction, and the lake part is at least true, although it’s not quite as mystical as you’d hope.
