Brisbane’s ‘Batman’ mansion with secret tunnel sets property record

A Brisbane mansion which made headlines around the world for its secret Batman tunnel has been snapped up after only weeks on the market in a record deal worth more than $8.3 million.

Dubbed one of the city’s coolest pieces of residential engineering, the six-level luxury home at 128 Crosby Road, Ascot, drew comparisons with the Batcave at Wayne Manor for its secretive entrance — a 50-metre concrete enclosed tunnel which extends upwards to an underground bunker-like garage capable of accommodating eight to ten cars.

The tunnel runs from the street right up to a bunker-style gararage that can accommodate 10 cars.
