There are few places in Australia that have been so directly affected by war like north Queensland. Even today, defence remains at the heart of our tropical cities.

With the generous assistance of the Museum of Tropical Queensland in Townsville, the Australian War Memorial is fortunate to be able to have a suite of Memorial Boxes available for schools and community organisations in these northern regions. For these borrowers, in particular, the Memorial Box contents are often deeply moving and thought-provoking.

In this article published in the Townsville Bulletin, a student shares how she felt delving into the items. To read further, please follow this link:
