Travel: Possum Park, central Queensland
Explore this tourist park’s rich WWII heritage, with Tony and Denyse AllsopPossum Park is a unique caravan park, located a 700-acre property near Miles in south-east Qld. During WWII, half of it was used by the RAAF 3CR Kowguran unit as an ammunition storage base incorporating 20 underground bunkers.
David and Julie Hinds purchased the property in 1985 and converted many of the bunkers into motel-type, air-conditioned units. Railway carriages dating back to the 1940s have been refurbished as accommodation units, plus a reading room and TV room. A replica railway station and crossing add to the effect.
