The POW working camp was built in 1944 housing 220 Italian prisoners of war from the Northern African campaign of World War II. The prisoners worked in the forest cutting firewood and lived and worked at the camp. It closed in 1946 at which point prisoners were repatriated to Italy. There is a nice little walk trail through the camp and the different foundations are sign-posted so you can get an idea of how the camp would have functioned.

This is a toilet here, as well as a signboard with shelter.

Note the large jarrah tree with a shield marker (BV 68 9). These were used as reference system for foresters back in the early 1900's.
