Q from Wendy Stewart

This photo is from my family collection and shows my ancestor Sapper Emmanuel Penneyston 4783 (front centre) who enlisted with 5th Coy Miners on 3rd March 1916 at Claremont, Tasmania . He was transferred to the Miners Training Camp, Broadmeadows, Victoria, 29th April 1916 and embarked on HMAT 'Warilda' 25th May 1916. My question to Australian War Memorial is , can you help me regarding where this photo may have been taken, could it be Claremont , Broadmeadows , Amesbury or Tidworth, England where they trained for about a month before going to France ?I believe the photo was taken before they went to France as no wound stripes or service chevrons are visible.The 13 men with Mannie are unidentified and I would like to narrow down the place if possible to help put names to faces. Thanks for your help,
