Paddy's Flat Tank Traps

The Tank Traps at Paddy’s Flat were another integral part of Australia’s defences during World War II.

There are 26 concrete pyramids that were cast onsite and then connected together by steel cable in the river. Timber posts were also buried in the ground on the bank either side of the ride. After the war was over, they were dragged up on the bank on the southern side of the river. A flood in 2011 exposed all the concrete pyramids to some degree.

How To Get There

Turn off the Bruxner Highway 3km west of Tabulam, onto Paddy’s Flat Road. Follow the road for 28km and the Tank Traps are on the right, just before Paddy’s Flat Bridge.
