Description

In 1915, the area between Featherston and the Tauherenikau River was acquired by the Ministry of Defence. The area was chosen as the site to train the New Zealand soldiers heading to Europe to serve in World War I.



Development began on the site with over 1,000 workmen constructing what would become NZ’s largest military training camp; Featherston Military Camp.
