3rd Australian Hospital

The site of the 3rd Australian General Hospital. It used to be a large campaign hospital that was set up on the Portianou peninsula in August 1915 and remained there until January 1916 when it was moved to Alexandria, Egypt. It had many beds, dispensaries, and hospital laboratories, as well as tents for staff living while its capacity reached 1000 beds. Many doctors and nurses from Australia worked there and the site from where the ANZAC used to watch ships arriving and departing from Mudros Bay in their spare time, is behind the hospital site.
