TWO SMALL CONCRETE BUNKERS
LOCATED 10 KMS SOUTH WEST OF BUNDABERG, QLD
POSSIBLY USED DURING WWII

 

There were two small concrete bunkers located 10 kms south west of Bundaberg during WWII. They are located at Kentucky Bluegrass about 12 kms by road from Bundaberg on the Bundaberg - Childers Road (Isis Highway).

These bunkers are similar to the Machine Gun concrete bunkers on the Town Common in Townsville in north Queensland. This would suggest that they were probably observation bunkers (shelter huts) associated with a WWII Bombing Range that was located near Bundaberg. There are three files in the National Archives of Australia regarding a Bombing Range at Bundaberg.
