Shape is very similar than plane pontoons, but it's length look quite small for war time seaplanes.

Does look like a small seaplane pontoon - or one off the end of a wing on a larger plane like the Sikorsky S-42. Or, could be something off one of the smaller experimental models. There was a wartime experiment with Spitfires to make some into small seaplanes as opposed to the larger flying boats. Or the Grumman UF-1 Albatross. Or just a tank of some sort, like a spare fuel tank for long range flight!

Wing pontoon from a Catalina.

A sort of 20th century sham ruin-type folly, this aircraft hangs around in the forest at the Kuranda Markets after languishing  in a scrapyard since being picked out of the sea after filming The Sky Pirates. This is why it has Allied WW2 colours and Trans-Australian Airways markings simultaneously.

Jars hanging about inexplicably under the bonnet of a car with tubes leading out of them? No-one should want to know!

Some guns found on the reef.

These old cannon are rather interesting, the "dragon cannon" especially since it is a design unique to Indonesia/ Indochina but saw use for many years by Pirates of the South China Seas!

Indeed, it was found on the Great Barrier of Reefs and the last I heard, no-one knows who left it there.
