The Compound is infamous in Melbourne for drag racing, dirt biking, four wheeling, paint ball and more, it is a large area of paved streets, of about 200 miles of road. The streets were paved in the 1980s by General Development Corporation (GDC), intended for housing development, instead, the company went bankrupt in 1991, and it became a playground for those with dangerous hobbies.
Also known as “the Grid” or “Palm Bay Maze” there are no street signs, and incredibly easy to get lost. Many, many injuries have occurred there, though its not sure how many deaths… however, its become an energy attracting hotspot, many people report seeing people walking along the streets and disappearing, as well as phantom lights along the streets.
