The School of Arts building at Nudgee Beach in Brisbane was taken over by an Australian Army Searchlight Unit attached to 56 Battery Royal Australia Engineers during WW2.

The School of Arts building at Nudgee Beach was located directly on the edge of the beach.

This is the most northern of today's covered picnic areas.

During this time, the School of Arts moved to a house owned by the Hough Family in O'Quinn Street at Nudgee Beach. When the Army moved out in about May 1944, the School of Arts returned to its own building.
