Hut C1 Camp Columbia used by migrant family Volz in 1950

Bernice Volz who, in the 1950s, lived in one of the huts in the former Camp Columbia – Camp Area No. 1 recalls that it was hut No. C1 that was allocated to her family when they arrived at the Wacol Migration Centre.

More information on this hut and its occupants, as well as on other huts and personal stories from Camp Columbia, is very welcome. We are also aware that huts were demolished and reconstructed elsewhere; information on these buildings is also very welcome.
