Remembrance Drive commemorates those who served at the Lowood Aerodrome during World War Two.

In July 1941 Lowood district was selected for the establishment of No. 12 Elementary Flying Training School and 640 acres at Mt Tarampa were acquired by the Australian Government for £4,400. In 1942 the facility was upgraded to an operational base and intelligence centre to monitor and prevent Japanese activities in the region. The aerodrome and its bunkers remained in use by the RAAF until the base was decommissioned in 1946
