Charlie's Hill

Constructed by the RAAF in 1943, the No 211 Radar Station on Charlie’s Hill was one of twenty radar installations along the North Queensland coastline. These radar stations operated to provide early warning of approaching enemy aircraft during World War II. When visiting this historic site, igloos of reinforced concrete which provided bomb-proof protection for the radar equipment can still be seen.

Charlie's Hill is a six minute drive south of Home Hill. Travelling along the Bruce Highway, look for the signs on the left of the road. Turn onto Charlie's Hill Road and travel about 1.5km, until the hill is visible on the right. Access to the hill from the road is an unsealed track.
