MACHINE GUN POSITIONS
ON CLIFF ABOVE THE TOBRUK BATHS
TOWNSVILLE, QLD

There would have been many machine gun positions around the lower ridges of Castle Hill during World War 2. I was told of some in the Yarrawonga area and one above Smyth Street at Belgian Gardens and of one directly above the Tobruk Baths on the cliffs below the houses. There is still an Ammunition Magazine located at North Ward which was probably used to re-supply these emplacements in that general North Ward area
