Torrens Creek

Located in the outback of Queensland in Australia (145.016E 20.767S), the airfield at Torrens Creek was expanded by 46 Engineer Regiment beginning in March 1942 to serve as a base for B-17s. The base eventually had three 7000' (2130m) runways, two of gravel and one surfaced with Marston mat, and two 25,000 gallon (94,600 liter) underground gasoline tanks. The airfield was abandoned by June 1944.
