Location - Townsville, North Queensland, Australia
Townsville has a rich World War II history. During World War II, concrete bunkers, forts, vantage points, searchlights, and gun emplacements were constructed and used by Australian and American soldiers. Many of them still stand today and remind us of Townsville's military history.
A persistent urban legend has it that when American troops were stationed in Townsville during World War II, they offered to demolish the hill and construct a causeway to Magnetic Island. Another is that American troops constructed tunnels under Castle Hill and Kissing Point. Maybe no one will ever know the real story.
