What people are saying:

As the commercial center of Brisbane since ancient times, the brown-yellow building at the crossroads will definitely attract your attention. In the 1940s, it was the headquarters of AMP. I think it was one of the most modern office buildings in Australia and the southern hemisphere. One. In 1942, MacArthur, who had fled from the Philippines in embarrassment, established his own headquarters on the eighth floor of this building. The US-Australian forces, with Brisbane as their base camp, began a bloody battle with the Japanese on the islands of the South Pacific. And fierce battle. Now MacArthur’s headquarters has been transformed into the MacArthur Memorial, which introduces the lives of Brisbane and MacArthur himself during World War II.
