DID JAPANESE LAND IN BROADSOUND
AND TRAVEL UP THE STYX RIVER
IN CENTRAL QUEENSLAND
DURING WW2?

 

There are stories around that a Japanese party landed in the Broadsound area in central Queensland and travelled up the Styx River, to possibly blow up the troop railway line which heads north. The story goes that they were captured and shot and buried on Rosewood Island in the Styx River near Ogmore. These stories are still unsubstantiated.

 

Can anyone confirm whether this is fact or fiction?
