Historical Story

Heavy WW2 bomber forward base built by Australians and many Wunambal Gaambera people in 1944 to raid the (now) Indonesian islands. Many Traditional Owners watched their first ‘cowboy’ movie films here at “Anjo Palace” Cinema. Mungalalu Truscott is owned by the Wunambal Gaambera people. Today the base supports helicopter logistics to off-shore oil and gas rigs.
