Caloundra City Band - Battle of the Pacific 20 Aug

Caloundra was a staging and training area for troop movements to the Theatre of War. This city was the defensive line the Government muted for the protection of the Southern States.It was suggested that if Japan invaded Northern Australia that every man, women and child would defend this defensive line which crossed through Caloundra. There are generations who are currently living in Caloundra who have no idea of the significant history of this area and what this area did for the victory in the Second World War. A celebration dance was held at Caloundra in 1945 and nearly 60 years to the day a re - enactment of that dance will take place. With the participation of all partners and persons involved, between 1000 and 1500 people will be attending. As well as the dance, the is a possibility of a battery of artillery and a fly-by of a Royal Australian Aircraft.
