Camp Hart

Camp Hart was founded in 1999 as a place where Australian Defence Force Veterans, and their families and friends, could find solitude and /or friendship within the Veteran Community year round.

More importantly Camp Hart, in conjunction with the Kulin Bush Races, brings together the Veteran Community and the local Wheatbelt Community.

Camp Hart was named after Peter Hart who was wounded on the 21st of March 1967, and died 8 days later of his wounds in a Field Ambulance, Vung Tau, South Vietnam.  At this time, his parents were the Postmaster/Mistress of Kulin. The public is welcome to visit Peter’s memorial, which is located to the north of the Bush Races Track at Jilakin.

An annual Memorial service is held, on the Saturday morning of the Bush Races at 8.00am. Everyone is welcome.

Getting there

From Kulin, travel east along the Tin Horse Highway. Turn left at the Bush Races sign (Jilakin Rock North Rd) and follow the road for approx 2 km past Jilakin Rock. Approx. 200mtrs past Jilakin Rock turn left (just before the bend).

Camp Hart  is available for use all year round by ADF Veterans and the Local Community. Facilities include toilet and shower ablution blocks - including disabled shower/toilet. There is a fully enclosed ‘Meet and Greet’ area with gas BBQ, pot belly stoves and a generator.

Camp Hart would not exist without the support and efforts of the 9 Vietnam Veteran Project Pioneers and their families, the Shire of Kulin, the Lucchesi family and all the good people of Kulin.

Camp Hart has been given permission to use its logo from the Australian Department of Defence and reflects the three services of the Australian Defence Force: Navy, Army and Air force.
