HENDRA WOOL STORES
NUDGEE ROAD, HENDRA, QLD
When Adamas Jorgensen first saw the Hendra Wool Stores, at Nudgee Road in Hendra, Brisbane, Queensland "they were 2 or 3 storey, raw timber-clad sheds. In the early '60's, there would have been, at least, 30 or more. The last time I saw them they were still there but had been 'refurbished', the timber-cladding replaced with a more-modern cladding. The stores, I have been led to believe, were built by the Americans to stockpile American stores for the south-west pacific theatre."

The Brisbane Military Phone Directory for October 1943 shows a number of Quartermaster Warehouses for Base Section 3 as follows:-
Hedley Park AA
Hedley Park AB
Hedley Park Property AC
Hedley Park Property AD
Hedley Park AX
Hedley Park No. 19
Hedley Park No. 20
Hedley Park Issue
Can anyone confirm whether these are the Warehouse that later went on to become the Hendra Wool Stores??
I'd like to thank Adamas Jorgensen for his assistance with this home page.
Can anyone help me with more information?
