Wulguru QLD


Postcode: 4811

Wulguru is a suburb of Townsville, Queensland.

At the corner of Diamantina St and Stuart Drive is a large block of land at the base of Mount Stuart. During World War II, this was the site of 3 Fighter Sector Headquarters including bunkers.

3 Fighter Sector Headquarters comprised 32 rooms in the large rectangular concrete building with caneite partitions forming various passageways. The building still stands today and is 60 ft X 42 ft. The mezzanine floor has long since disappeared.

The bunker structure is apparently classified in the Heritage register and encompasses the boundary of Diamantina Street, Stuart Drive and Hill Street, Wulguru.
