FREE Guided Tour of World War 2 concrete RAAF Bunkers at Moruya
FREE TOUR ..... BACK AGAIN BY POPULAR DEMAND! This time, to commemorate the 75th ANNIVERSARY of the END OF WORLD WAR 2. Have you ever wanted to visit and inspect the WW2 concrete bunkers at Moruya Airport? This FREE walking tour has been a huge success every time it has been conducted. Again we will gain exclusive access to the RAAF concrete bunkers and learn about the history surrounding these silent reminders of World War Two. Join Military Historian Gary Traynor (ex-Assistant Curator, Australian War Memorial and Battlefield Guide of Gallipoli, Western Front, Kokoda and Thai Burma Railway) for a graphic description of when war came to the south coast.
This is a FREE historic tour of the World War Two concrete RAAF Bunkers which are located near the current Moruya Airport. This will be the public "ANZAC Day" event which many did not attend in 2020 due to the Covid 19 isolation laws. The date recognizes the six RAAF airmen who tragically died in the air crash on Mullenderry Flat. NEW DATE:- Sunday 1st November 2020. 5 years ago a RAAF Avro Anson aircraft took off from Moruya aerodrome. Approximately ten minutes later, this aircraft crashed at North Moruya (Mullenderry Flat) ..... and as a result of this tragic event, six young Airmen were killed. They have NEVER been publicly commemorated or recognized. So we plan to change that and dedicate a memorial to these six men + two who died in a separate air crash during 1943. We will also recognize the three Merchant Seaman killed by a Japanese submarine during 1942. FREE TOUR but you are asked that you register your interest.
