VP70 Photographic Display

On 15 August 1945, the Second World War in the Pacific came to an end with the announcement of Japan's surrender. Townsville, home to a major Allied military presence during the war, was a scene of jubilation when the news was received. 

In 1995 and 2005, Townsville commemorated the anniversary of Victory in the Pacific with the VP50 and VP60 events, and this year will mark the occasion with VP70.

This special photographic exhibition shows local images from the period, including military and civilian scenes from the Second World War and the celebrations on VP Day.
