TANKS FOR THE MEM­O­RIES: Mount Perry's de­com­mis­sioned Leopard Tank was the last one to fire a shot on an Aus­tralian fir­ing range. The tank was ded­i­cated at Mount Perry on Septem­ber 10, 2011, as a memo­rial to Aus­tralians who have served since the Sec­ond World War. The Her­vey Bay World War One re-en­act­ment group acted as hon­our guard and a time cap­sule from the lo­cal school and com­mu­nity was sealed into the tank dur­ing the cer­e­mony.
