NO. 27 RADAR STATION RAAF
TOWNSVILLE, QLD
DUNK ISLAND, QLD
DURING WW2

 

Cpl. Ken Hogan of Base Radio MCS, RAAF Base Townsville is researching No. 27 Radar Unit that was based in Townsville and Dunk Island during WW2. He would like to find the sites it was located at and visit them. 

While holidaying on the island in 1984 Geoff Russell walked to the site of the former No. 27 Radar RAAF and was able to photograph the rather deteriorated remains of the radar unit. Geoff was told that the site suffered this damage during a cyclone. The site is an easy walk from the resort to the top of the peak on the island.
