This Centenary of Anzac commemoration is a moving tribute to the 1200 men and
women connected to the area who volunteered for service in World War One
A different aspect of the war years is told in the
little known story of life in the Internment Camp
in Berrima. German merchant mariners -
captains, senior officers and seamen - were
interned in this rural paradise for more than four
years. They were allowed some freedom during
the day and only locked up in Berrima Gaol
The exhibition includes rare footage of a 1919
film documenting some of their activities along
the Wingecarribee River.
