"The Ingleburn Army Camp was one of Australia's major army camps from 1939 to the 1970s. It was the first purpose-built infantry training camp for World War II. It later played a significant role in the training of personnel for the Korean and Vietnam Wars and was the centre in Australia for National Service training from 1951 to 1972. It continued to play a significant role in the training of Army Reserves from 1973 to the 1990s."

I was called up for National Service in July 1968. I did recruit training at Kapooka in Wagga Wagga and infantry training at Bardia Barracks in Ingleburn. The Ingleburn army camp was closed down in 1999 with the property sold off to provide land for Sydney's sprawling housing needs. All that is left of the old army barracks is a small 'Military Heritage Precinct" and Mont St Quentin Oval. The precinct includes the old barrack gates, guard house, post office and chaplains office. There is also a museum and a number of well preserved guns. Entry to the Precinct is only by appointment. For a large group tour of the precinct contact Leon Walker on 4572 7768. For small or personal tours contact Ron Brown on 9607 2350.
