Cambooya

19–20 November 1915
Cambooya Masonic Hall, Harrow and Gore Streets, Cambooya

The men marched from Greenmount to Cambooya in time for lunch on 19 November 1915. Here they were met by a parade of vehicles, people on horseback and school children from Cambooya, Ramsay and Harrow. A swim in the creek cooled them off, and a sports afternoon was held to lift the spirits of the men. Further country hospitality was provided including an evening meal from the Shire Council. A recruitment meeting in the Masonic Hall was accompanied by a concert and supper. The men camped at the hall overnight.

The State Commandant Colonel Lee stayed with the Ramsay family at Harrow—now a garden estate, only open to the public during the Carnival of Flowers and for the Open Garden Scheme.
