Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Bombing Range
"Wyaralong” Bombing and Gunnery Range
- Training facility
Beaudesert-Boonah Road, Wyaralong 4310
In 1940 a RAAF bombing range was established on Wyaralong Station, south of the Beaudesert-Boonah Road, just west of Lower Sandy Creek.
This would have initially been used to train pilots under the Empire Air Training Scheme (EATS), most likely pilots from the No. 3 Service Flying training School (SFTS) at Amberley, about 34km to the northwest.
