Bonegilla Migrant Experience, Bonegilla

#46 of 328 in Museums in Victoria
Visit Bonegilla Migrant Experience to glimpse the hopes and dreams of post-war migrants.

In December 2007, Bonegilla Migrant Reception and Training Centre - Block 19 was recognised as a place with powerful connections for many people in Australia and a symbol of post-war migration which transformed Australia's economy, society and culture under the National Heritage List.

Until August 30, 2017 - remedial works will be occurring on-site. This means that some buildings will not be open to the public. There is still plenty to see and do in the mean time. We look forward to welcoming you.

It was great to go through and see what old items they had used and how they where living to their experiences. Great place to stop on the border!
  • Such a treasure! Tells an important story about how Australian immigration changed and why. Well worth a visit. As an added bonus you may get good photos of a large kangaroo herd roaming the grounds 🙂
