A Voice of 1915 German Internee

Come and see a German diary, written by 4th Officer, Fritz Stegherr, who was a prisoner on the Island.

The 1915 diary is among other collectables at the Visitor Centre.

The site is significant as a rare Tasmanian example of a late 19th century quarantine station. It highlights how people demonstrated their institutional attitudes towards social class and health.
