Information

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. 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.

If you have a smartphone with you, you can also download the "Towers Hill in WWII" app which offers an augmented reality experience of moving through military bunkers, bomber squadron flyovers and the ability to interact with military artefacts.
