Dunera Museum

Railway Station Murray St Hay NSW 2711

Explores one of the most fascinating stories in Australian history – a story that stretches from WW2 to modern-day Australia. From the capitals of Europe to the vast flatness of the Hay Plains.
Over 6,000 German, Italian and Japanese civilian Internees and Prisoners of War (POW) were kept in three Prison Camps at Hay between 1940 and 1946. They were guarded by over 600 members of the 16th Australian Garrison Battalion.
The 'Dunera Boys', 1,984 German Jews and other refugees from Nazi-occupied Europe, were the first internees of British Government WWII policy and arrived in Hay on 7th September 1940.
The museum is a moving tribute to the power of the human spirit. Located at the Hay Railway.
