This camp, set up by the Australian Army in 1942, was broken into company areas, and the troops were housed in wooden huts, which were arranged around central headquarters and a parade ground. There were also quartermaster stores and recreation facilities, and the set-up indicates the permanency of the site for the duration of World War II. The No.1 Staging Camp would have serviced a large number of men during the war.
