Day 1:In Their Steps WW2 Tour of Horn Island

Horn Island ‘In Their Steps’ WW2 Tour


We walk in the steps of those who served on Horn Island during WW2, visiting underground rooms, gun emplacements, magazines, the airstrip, aircraft, slit trenches and more. 

Horn Island is the second most attacked location in Australia and was the base for approximately 5000 Australian, American soldiers and airmen, with the Navy stationed on Thursday Island.

We visit some beautiful scenic spots during our small group tour in an air-conditioned bus with Vanessa or Liberty as your guide. A small group allows you to personally interact with your guide.

The commentary is a mix of archival records and personal stories told by the veterans themselves, this mix providing an informative and entertaining personal tour.

Includes time at your leisure to explore the museum, and a transfer to/from the airport/wharf.
