Puckapunyal Army Camp also called Pucka was established in 1939 in the lead-up to World War II. It played a role in preparing troops for battle and was also where Victoria's National Service participants were trained; it remains one of Australia's largest and most significant Army bases.
There are several buildings of significant historic value and we had the pleasure of working on one of the buildings. The interior rooms worked on were finished in traditional white set plaster finishes.
'Puckapunyal' was used by local Aborigines (the Taungurung) to describe a hill now within the military complex.
All you need is photo ID and you can enter the Puckapunyal Military Area.
