Prospect Air Raid Shelter mural (Prospect Local History Group)

Prospect Air Raid Shelter Tour

Prospect Air Raid Shelter was built in 1942. Prospect Local History Group and the City of Prospect have together brought fresh life to this historic wartime area through landscaping and seating. Display panels tell the story of how the air raid shelter came to be built in the darkest days of the Second World War. The Prospect Air Raid Shelter Gardens commemorate those who served in the war and particularly honours the civil defence effort in our local community. In this tour, we will also visit the interior, learn how our civil defence was planned and view a civil defence film. Ideal for children! Bookings essential.
