Brochures showcase World War II sites
A NEW brochure has been developed to showcase and promote World War II sites on the southern Tablelands.
Tablelands Regional Council has just released the World War II Trail brochure which includes sites such as the Rocky Creek Igloo, the Atherton War Cemetery, and facilities that house military history such as the Tolga Historical Society and Museum.
“The Atherton Tablelands played a major role during the Pacific conflict during WWII and our region has many sites, place markers and displays of WWII historical information,” Cr Dave Bilney said.
“Some of the sites are not obvious and you may have been driving past them for years.”
The trail map can be downloaded from council’s website (www.trc.qld.gov.au/war-history-trails) or picked up from one of the visitor information centres.
“This new brochure complements the Tablelands Anzac Trail brochure that has been enjoyed by locals and visitors for the past few years,” Cr Bilney said.
