Catalina Memorial

The Catalina Memorial is for 11 and 20 RAAF Squadrons and was unveiled in 1976. The scale model aircraft was put on the top in 1995, to mark the 50th anniversary of the end of WW II. The plaque on the memorial gives an interesting account of the Catalinas' activities during the war. 

The Historical Node, located near the end of Florence Street, contains information about the Catalinas during WW II.
