But with summertime temperatures soaring to 120 degrees, the town features hundreds of "dug out" homes, burrowed into the rock and naturally cooled. Seth Doane explores the underground town, complete with bar, beauty salon, bookstore and hotel.

Operating, usually in small splinter teams alongside the infantry, their job was mine laying, bomb disposal, building, body disposal and when the infantry found an enemy tunnel it was the sappers job to go in first and "make is safe". Filmed at their 2004 ANZAC reunion weekend this moving, funny and always thought provoking film tells the amazing story of the creation and coming og age of 3 Troop, The Tunnel Rats.
