During World War I, 2,940 German and Austrian men were interned in ten different camps in Australia. Almost all of the men listed as being Austrians were from the Croatian coastal region of Dalmatia, then under Austrian rule.

In 1915 many of the smaller camps in Australia closed, with their inmates transferred to larger camps. The largest camp was at Holsworthy in New South Wales. Families of the interned men were placed in a camp near Canberra.

During World War II, there were internment camps in country New South Wales at Orange and Hay for ethnic Germans in Australia of suspect loyalty; German refugees from Nazism including the "Dunera boys"; and Italian immigrants, many later transferred to Tatura in Victoria (4,721 Italian immigrants were interned in Australia).
