Top Secret WWII Tour

Charleville, Murweh Area

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, this tour is not operational at the moment. They will be continuing to take advice daily from the Government and look forward to being operational as soon as possibly able.

It's like finding an archaeological dig before it's uncovered. Charleville Airport became part of the United States of America in 1942 when the site was handed over to the USAAF as a top secret site during World War II.
There were up to 3500 (the population of Charleville today) United States Servicemen serving in the area.

Many of the sites have been uncovered and you can join a guided tour of the base. Drive your own car (high clearance vehicle preferably) for this experience. Bookings are essential and can be made at the Charleville Cosmos Centre and Information Centre, or by going online and doing it in the comfort of your own home at their website.

The tour departs the Cosmos Centre. You would need to confirm the day and time as the weather changes so does the tour time.

Please call for group bookings.
