Enoggera (Gaythorne), Queensland (1914–15 and 1940–46)
World War I
The Enoggera internment camp was located next to an existing army camp in what is now suburban Brisbane. It housed nearly 140 internees, including the non-military officers and crew of civilian German ships docked in Brisbane after the outbreak of war. Many of the men were married, but their families were not taken into the camp. For the first five months, until March 1915, the internees were able to leave the camp during daylight hours and they could be employed. The camp was closed in August 1915 and the internees were transferred to the Holsworthy camp in New South Wales.
