Strathglass Airfield


Strathglass Station (north of Flinders Highway), Prairie 4816

Strathglass Airfield was located near Hughenden, and can be grouped with three or four others as sites chosen in 1942 for which only some basic clearing was done. The need for several of these disappeared thankfully and in most cases little visual evidence remains of such urgent work.


Clearing which was undertaken was generally done by Units of the Main Roads Commission working with the CCC - Civil Construction Corps, or under the guise of the Allied Works Council. Certainly there is evidence that two strips were slated for Prairie Strathglass but it does appear only one was significantly cleared.
