This is a catalogue entry on the Queensland State Archives website about Carramar Receiving and Assessment Centre, and its predecessors Carramar Children's Home, Townsville Orphanage and Townsville Receiving Depot.

It contains a description of the establishment, function and administrative structure of the institutions, and links to information about records held by Queensland State Archives.

The Queensland State Archives probably used the name 'Carramar' to refer to the name of the institution when it closed and the records were transferred to them. (This is common practice across most Australian public records offices, archives and libraries).

The title for this catalogue entry is 'Carramar', and according to the Archives the correct way to cite it is: 'Queensland State Archives Agency ID2493, Carramar'.
