Kingaroy War Cemetery contains the graves of 22 men who served at the Royal Australia Air Force training base during World War Two.

The Kingaroy Airfield was a training base for many thousands of our country’s airmen prior to their going into combat overseas in New Guinea and the Pacific Islands. The selection of Kingaroy as an RAAF. training base, and staging ‘drome for the United States 5th Air Force in the South Pacific rendered the area a high priority target in the then likely event of a Japanese air or land attack.

At least eight planes crashed in the Kingaroy, Booie, Inverlaw and Dangore areas. Most of the personnel from these planes were laid to rest at the Taabinga War Cemetery.
