Stratford Works Depot
Places of Significance - Cairns Regional Council

The workshops were set up to service equipment used in providing facilities and sites for the training of combat ready soldiers, and aeroplane landing zones and their facilities, during the Second World War. Exactly how the site functioned remains unclear although the generalities of the operation can be ascertained from the surviving buildings. The site has potential to yield further information on its integration in the Second World War effort against the invasion forces of the Japanese.
