In 2015, the Centenary year of Anzac, Greenmount’s Blackboy Hill Training Camp received the long-awaited recognition it deserves as one of Western Australia’s most important historical military sites, with the launch of Blackboy Hill is Calling, a non-profit social/military history documenting a variety of aspects of camp life, in what is the first book about the site.


Blackboy Hill is Calling is the first comprehensive history of the campsite, researched and written by a group of dedicated volunteers – members of the nearby Katharine Susannah Prichard (KSP) Writers’ Centre, former home of Lieutenant Hugo Throssell VC, a Lighthorseman who also trained at Blackboy Hill.
