The 2 AWAS Barrack was located in an area at Indooroopilly which would now be part of St. Peter's Lutheran College grounds.

AWAS from this camp were attached to the headquarters of the Military Signals Unit, 24 Lines of Communication (24 L of C) which was located at Long Pocket, adjoining to the Indooroopilly Golf Course.

Many of the personnel at the AWAS Camp manned teleprinters at the Queensland University which was General Blamey's Advanced Land Headquarters, where important signals were sent and received from units in the war zones. The AWAS also worked at the 24 Lines of Communication (24 L of C) camp at Long Pocket and  manned switchboards at Victoria Barracks.
