Underground Hospital and Museum reviews
It is closed for renovations and will not reppen until 2021. I was looking forward to visiting. Oh well ... maybe another year. more »
Definitely worth visiting. Great to learn some history of the area during the war. There is no shortage of medical equipment on display and the underground mine itself is also extremely interesting... more »
Mount Isa Underground Hospital is an unusual and interesting piece of history. In 1942 with the threat of Japanese bombing very real it was decided to establish an underground hospital to be used if needed. Located in a hill behind the existing above ground hospital locals tunneled out and equipped the hospital. Visitors can walk through the tunnels and learn how the hospital functioned view medical equipment and furnishings from the original fitout. Also onsite with the hospital is the Beth Anderson Museum which has an excellent array of antique medical equipment. Worth a visit.
Had a wonderful visit , so interesting to think that all those years ago , after the Japs bombed Darwin that they could go further south and drop bombs on Mount Isa...The power's that be at the time came up with the brilliant idea of an underground Hospital. However it was never used as a hospital , but was a cool place on a hot Mount Isa day for nightshift staff to catch up on some sleep...
