Bamaga : WW2 Aircraft Wreckage

In among the gum trees and the palms, located by a handpainted sign and some crossed fingers you’ll find some other pieces of Australian history. Two WWII aircraft, maintained by the Australian War Memorial are found in the scrub at Bamaga.

Between the two aircraft, 8 crew members perished. It’s quite an emotional experience to see these wrecks and to think about those who lost their lives.

Lest We Forget.
