War on our shores
2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War. During that war, Moreton Bay Region and its people were forever changed. Bribie Island transformed into a military installation and throughout our region, mainland areas became locations for soldier training and recreational camps.
War on our shores explores the unforeseen changes for locals as Australia prepared for the unknown and what life was like for the soldiers stationed here, ready to defend when the battle reached our shores.
Exhibition developed by Moreton Bay Regional Council.
