Gallipoli Barracks Enoggera (Brisbane)

Gallipoli Barracks, Enoggera has a long history, having been in existence officially since 1908, although the wider area has been used for military purposes since 1855. Upon its establishment, the camp consisted of four paddocks that were used for training and drill. These being Bell, Fraser's, Rifle and Thompson's paddocks, with a number of rifle ranges being established there for use by civilian groups and units of the militia. Since then the base facilities have grown as the Army's presence there has grown through its involvement in the two World Wars and beyond. The base is currently the base is home to the majority of 7th Brigade units.
