It's gyprock and it's loose in the middle as if the glue has come away from the studs. You can push on it and it moves about 1mm. The problem seems to be in most of the rooms. It's a late 60's house and there is a railway line about 50m away from the house that may have caused the problem.

I would buy a stud finder and some plaster tacks (or screws) and do exactly that!
Find the stud roughly in the middle of each part of the plaster that is loose and whack 3 screws in. Top, middle and bottom.
Make sure that whatever method you use, you take the retainer in past flush (ie go into the plaster a bit 1-2 millimetres) to allow for some fill to cover your new holes.
Bunnings sell all the bits you need for a job like this.

What Matt said . It's probably not that the glue has come unstuck...more that it isn't there. I've been renovating and found that back then they didn't use as much glue as they probably should have. Matt's solution is the best way to go.
If all you can see are obstacles, you have lost sight of the goals
