Mount ISA UNDERGROUND HOSPITAL + MUSEUM

  • Visit 3 fascinating attractions in one location!
  • Beth Anderson Museum
  • Underground Hospital & Tunnel Network
  • Tent  House

Witness war-time resourcefulness at its best!

1942 brought the very real threat of an air raid attack on Mount Isa. The community of just 5,000 rallied and, along with local miners, constructed an underground hospital and tunnel network, out of harm’s way. After 15 weeks, water, electricity and telephone services were connected, and the hospital was ready! Visit to discover:

  • The power of WWII ingenuity and the volunteering spirit 
  • A faithfully preserved Mount Isa tent house
  • A vast collection of intriguing medical artefacts
  • Beth Anderson Museum (old maternity hospital)


“A thoroughly fascinating, educational experience for all ages!”
“Well preserved, unique and definitely worth visiting.”
