Loveday Internment Camp Lectures with Rosemary Gower

The Loveday Internment Camp was the largest group of internment camps in Australia during the Second World War. It was designed to hold 6,000 German, Italian and Japanese civilians who were detained overseas and around Australia. The camp covered 440 acres which were used to supply vegetables for the camp, pyrethrum daisies for insecticide for soldiers fighting in the Pacific, and opium poppies for morphine for army hospitals. Local historian Rosemary Gower will give a series of public lectures in the Riverland about this fascinating time in South Australia’s history. Bookings required by phone.
