Mount Isa Underground Hospital

During WW2 Darwin was bombed by the Japanese and as a precaution the strategically placed Mt Isa decided to build an underground hospital “just in case”It is fully equipped and when the war was over the Hospital was abandoned and left intact (fortunately it was never used !) It is now as it was in 1945 a permanent monument to people who cared Considering it was dug out and built into a hillside it is an extraordinary feat for its time. This days blog is dedicated to those people who under extreme conditions (heat,flies etc) made Mt Isa a safer place to live in
