Army Signals Switchboard Bunker and Observation Post

White’s Hill Reserve

Greater Brisbane

226 Boundary Road, Camp Hill 4152

The Australian Army established a signals switchboard room “bunker” on the lower slopes of White’s Hill in Camp Hill, south-east fo the city. In defence they also established an observation post on the pinnacle of the hill to oversee the facility. Within WWII Fortress Brisbane, the signals units passed anti-aircraft and defence signals through the switchboard room.


Little remain of the sites, but they are significant WWII historic places. The project is seeking information on or images of the White’s Hill sites during the war. Contact us at to contribute.
