As the commercial center of Brisbane since ancient times, the brown-yellow building at the crossroads will definitely attract your attention. In the 1940s, it was the headquarters of AMP. I think it was one of the most modern office buildings in Australia and the southern hemisphere. One. In 1942, MacArthur, who had fled from the Philippines in embarrassment, established his own headquarters on the eighth floor of this building. The US-Australian forces, with Brisbane as their base camp, began a bloody battle with the Japanese on the islands of the South Pacific. And fierce battle. Now MacArthur’s headquarters has been transformed into the MacArthur Memorial, which introduces the lives of Brisbane and MacArthur himself during World War II.
The museum is right in the heart of Brisbane and is a great little museum. I have lived in Brisbane for most of my life and just found this little gem. There was so much information I was not quite sure and it was interesting to learn how the war affected the lives of our people. Ron showed us around MacArthur's office. What a great guide, entertained us with stories all the time. Definitely recommend a visit here.
