Westall High School, Melbourne

April 6, 1966 marks a remarkable day in the history of Westall High School. That day, a class was running laps around the school’s field. When something unbelievable happened: a saucer-like machine flew over the southwest wing of the main building, before disappearing behind a line of trees. Not much more was needed to get articles about UFOs to appear in Australian newspapers, which collected close to 200 witness accounts. Without uncovering the mystery. While one theory suggests it was a military prototype developed by the Australian army, doubt remains. To get on top of this mystery, go to nearby Grange Reserve (UFO Park), where a children’s playground has a UFO theme.Westall High School, Melbourne.
