Event:
A historic wartime area in Prospect
As part of South Australia's History Festival, Prospect Local History Group is presenting a tour of the air raid shelter along Willcox Avenue in Prospect. The tour will provide you with the opportunity to visit the shelter's interior and learn more about our civil defence. Efforts were made to prepare people for potential air attacks during World War II.

You are welcome to visit at any time between 2pm and 4pm on Sunday the 22nd of May 2022, however, bookings are essential and a gold coin donation is appreciated.
