Stopped at this Site while touring and it is a Little bit of the History from the Dark days of the war with Japan that No one Seems to talk about at all.

Great historical monument, it's so hard to believe that in the 9 bombs the Japanese released in the Mossman Port Douglas area on one person sustained an injuried which was not life threatening, just frightening.

Mossman gained its own place in history on 31 July, 1942 when eight bombs were dropped from a Japanese long-range flying boat, around 13km north of the town.
One landed the near the home of the Zullo family, with shrapnel piercing the corrugated walls of the house and slicing through the scalp of two-year-old Carmel (Mele) as she lay in her cot.
The incident was formally documented in a report which stated that five or six enemy aircraft had been sighted over Mossman on 31 July and noted that “a bomb was dropped one mile north of the post office at Miallo”.
One chap at the time recalled how, upon hearing the aircraft noise, his father had rushed outside in his pyjamas, rifle in hand. “I yelled for dad to ‘shoot him down’.”
“As the plane flew on, I could hear a rack-racking noise then I saw a black bomb drop down from out of the plane’s belly. We heard other booming noises but could not see anything so Dad pulled on his Voluntary Defence Corps uniform over his pyjamas and went off to investigate.”
A nurse at the Mossman Hospital recalled she was on duty when they heard a plane overhead and went to look outside.
“It looked like a big black hawk circling the mill and right around the town area. It flew so low that in the bright moonlight we could see the pilot’s helmet.
“Then about 5am the superintendent of the Mossman Ambulance walked in wearing his tin helmet and covered in mud and said: We have our first air raid victim. Little Mele Zullo was taken straight to theatre to be treated for head wounds.”
The bombing was even reported in The Bangkok Times and the whole incident gathered more credibility when the logbook of Japanese pilot Sub Lieutenant Kiyoshi Mizukura confirmed the bombing.
The logbook states that the crew saw light and, assuming it was Cairns, dropped eight bombs at 3.30am on what they thought was the aerodrome.
A replica bomb and plaque was unveiled by Carmel Emmi (nee Zullo) at the spot on 31 July 1992 to mark the 50th anniversary of the bombing.
Carmel was the only civilian casualty inflicted by the enemy on Australia's east coast during World War II.

Saw this place while driving up to cape Trip and tried to remind myself to go visit on the way back. We did and were a little disappointing although it was a fun little 'side trip'.

Dont expect much as if you do it will become very anticlimactic. You turn from the main road into a little side road which takes you through some nice landscape.

I expected to see some kind of bombing 'remains' but was left disappointed. This does however give you the chance to imagine what it would of been like,

all in all, if you have the time it is well worth a quick little visit.

3km from main road - with road signs to it. There is a small “bomb” memorial with plaque telling the story - and a field with cows in! If you are interested in history then it is worthwhile just to make a small (10 minute) detour to recognise a moment in history.

We stopped by on our way back from Daintree. It's a cool place to stop by and acknowledge. We decided to do some research once we returned to our accommodation and discovered more information that the plaque didn't include. Check it out if your in the area.

Out of the way little site. Really enjoyed the stop. Not much here for you unless you love history and seeing the real Australia.

Went to this site today, nothing too exciting but interesting all the same.

If you put this into google maps it’ll take you to the right spot - -16.3705348,145.3764769

The map on here took us the wrong way, we then found the sign on the main road and followed it to find a memorial with some cows in a field.

We notice a sign and detour to investigate and found a small stone memorial for the bombing in W11.
Even Google maps do not know about this small memorial. Not much to see really but its history.
