33 AWAS BARRACKS FAWKNER PARK
SOUTH YARRA, MELBOURNE
IN AUSTRALIA DURING WWII
33 AWAS Barracks was located in Fawkner Park, South Yarra, Melbourne, Victoria for three years during WWII. It is believed these were AWAS who worked in Signals. Other AWAS had their barracks at "Grosvenor" at Queens Road. The site of 33 AWAS Barracks was marked by a drinking fountain with plaques which was erected in the park in 1982.
After the war the buildings were used as emergency accommodation for newly arrived migrants. Fawkner Park is bounded by St Kilda Road, Toorak Road and Commercial Road.
Can anyone help me with more information?
