History

Located east of the Moorook Game Reserve, Loveday was known for its Internment Camp during World War II.[3] The camp was established in 1941 and was one of the largest in Australia, covering approximately 180 hectares. The site was selected because of its rail and road connections, its irrigated fields and because both electricity and telephone communications were available.[4] The camp was closed in December 1946.

Today Loveday is a popular 4 x 4 adventure park.[5] Loveday is located in close proximity to the Murray River lagoons, known as the "Loveday Lagoons".
