Brief History

Also known as Camp Hospital Warradale where it was formed with 30 beds in January 1940. During the reorganisation of Camp Hospitals in June 1942 they were renamed 35th Australian Camp Hospital. In May 1943 the hospital moved to Camooweal in Queensland, providing detachments to staging camps along the Mt Isa to Larrimah and Alice Springs to Larrimah roads. As troop numbers in the Northern territory declined, the hospital was disbanded in May 1944 with the detachments taken over by the 55th Australian Camp Hospital.
