Quamby Youth Detention Centre

Details

The Quamby Youth Detention Centre in Symonston opened in 1962. It was a government-run facility, housing youth on short term remand, and (in the absence of any other facility) some children unable to live at home. Most ACT children who were sent to institutions in New South Wales initially spent some time in Quamby. In 2008, Quamby was replaced by the Bimberi Youth Justice Centre.
