Explore wartime camp
Explore one of Tatura’s wartime camps with The Tatura Historical Society with tour guide John Gribben on Sunday, October 15.
The bus leaves at 1 pm from the Tatura Irrigation and Wartime Camps Museum for the camp with Mr Gribben who will talk people through the history of the camp location.
Tatura Historical Society president Steve Barnard said the camp being visited is Camp No 1, which was a male civilian camp.
‘‘These camps held Germans, Italians and people declared illegal because of their nationalities during World War II,’’ he said.
‘‘We have people from all over the nation take part in the tours and often have descendants of those who lived in the camps or were connected to the camps when they were in operation.’’
The cost of the trip to be paid on the day is $15 and the bus returns to the museum at 4 pm.
Those attending are advised to wear sensible shoes and a hat.
