There are unsubstantiated claims that there was a secret Japanese Prisoner of War (POW) Camp located in the mangroves at Thompson's Point on the Fitzroy River to the south east of Rockhampton in central Queensland during World War 2.

There was reportedly a breakout of some Japanese prisoners on one occasion and two Japanese prisoners were shot and killed. They were supposedly buried at nearby Port Alma. Their grave sites were unmarked but it has been suggested that a number of local residents are still familiar with the exact location of these graves.

 

Did 20 - 30 Japanese land on
North Keppel Island, QLD during WW2?

 

Did 100 Japanese land just north of Farnborough, QLD
near Rockhampton during WW2?
