Waiting at the roadside

April 5th, 2011

I’d Paul, fellow hosteller back in Cairns, to thank. Sharing the story of World War Two soldiers billeted in tents in fields and woods throughout the Atherton Tablelands. A little respite from the oppressive coastal heat and humidity. Thousands. Waiting to depart from Cairns. Across the Coral Sea. Many never to return. The occasional roadside sign the only reminder of innumeral troops based on the plateaux.
