Mt Gambier

Historical photo of the base

The home of No 2 Air Observers School during World War II, Mt Gambier was another training base under the Empire Air Training Scheme. In addition to providing observer and recruit training, the base also housed detachments from a variety of maritime patrol squadrons carrying out anti-submarine patrols around the southern coastline of Australia.
