Leighton Battery spreads itself over vacant public land on Buckland Hill. The park is what is left of a large military complex which played an important role during World War II in WA?s military defences. It was developed in 1943 after Broom and Darwin were bombed.
At the time, Leighton Battery constructed an amazing complex of tunnels throughout the hill which were said to have been for the time, a real technical achievement. There are guided tours which are held on the first Sunday of every month conducted by the Royal Australian Artillery Historical Society from 10.00am to 3.00pm.
Location : Leighton Gun Battery Park, Mosman Park
