The interrogation of Japanese POW's took place in the old mansion called "Tighnabruaich" in Indooroopilly.

A joint US-Australian intelligence unit called the Allied Translation and Interpretation Section (ATIS) handled captured Japanese, who were held in cells on the grounds. Nisei (i.e. ethnic Japanese Americans) who handled much of the interpretation were housed across the river in the ATIS Camp called Camp Chelmer which was located in Neilson House, Rosebery Terrace, Chelmer, which is now a home for elderly people.
