A total of 29 concrete WWII bunkers are scattered around Towers Hill in the outback town of Charters Towers in north Queensland.

They were used to store bombs, ammunition, explosives, detonators … and they were all covered in mullock from the mullock heap so planes flying over would not know there were 29 little cement sheds down there full of explosives.
