Event description

Description

Prospect Local History Group presents a tour of the Prospect Air Raid Shelter, which was built in 1942. Prospect Local History Group and the City of Prospect have together brought fresh life to this historic wartime area through landscaping and seating. Display panels tell the story of how the air raid shelter came to be built in the darkest days of the Second World War.

The Prospect Air Raid Shelter Gardens commemorate those who served in the War and particularly honours the civil defence effort in our local community, under the leadership of former Prospect Mayor, Charlie Williamson. Additional display panels tell the tragic stories of several other local people who were involved in the theatre of war.

In this tour we will also visit the interior of the shelter and learn how our civil defence was planned.

Closed footwear essential. Steep steps to climb for tour of interior. Outside is accessible. Children must be supervised.

Entry by gold coin donation.

Bookings essential, via Eventbrite.

Waitlist available.

Tours today at: 11am, 11.30am, 3.00pm and 3.30pm.
