Man builds bunker for nuclear war in town south-west of Melbourne

  • A Yugoslavian man has built a bunker under his house north-west of Melbourne 
  • Jakov Loncarevic is prepared for fire or nuclear war with four-metre deep bunker
  • The builder said he had supplies to survive disaster in bunker for about two years

A Yugoslavian man has spent the past two decades building a bunker under his house in preparation for the worst.

Jakov Loncarevic began turning his backyard in Minyip, 308km north-west of Melbourne, into an emergency hideaway in case of fire, flood or nuclear war.

The house may appear normal from the street, but what lies underneath will sustain the dedicated builder for about two years, A Current Affair reported.

With 200 pairs of underwear, 6000 litres of water and 120kg of honey, Mr Loncarevic is prepared for any ‘unforeseen events’ with his ’emergency survival place’.

The Yugoslavian moved to Australia in 1979 after spending years guarding plutonium stockpiles – a radioactive metal used as an explosive in nuclear fission weapons. 

Mr Loncarevic said the four-metre deep bunker is ‘nuclear proof’ which he created by removing 40,000 buckets of dirt and using 2500 bags of concrete, 40 tonnes of steel and 20 tonnes of wood.

The outspoken builder even removed more than 70 trees from his property to prevent potential bush fires.

‘(People) asking me so stupid questions … is this (bunker) for stacking the bodies,’ Mr Loncarevic told the Nine Network.

‘(It’s my) emergency survival place.

‘In case of unforeseen events … I will survive.’
