Bonegilla Migrant Experience

Bonegilla Migrant Experience is a national heritage site that symbolises a defining era of cultural change in Australia, resulting in a major shift in the nation’s economy, society and culture. 

A former post-war migrant reception and training centre, the site holds powerful connections for many people in Australia.

One in 20 people in Australia have a family connection to the site, making it an important place for migrants who spent time there while it was a reception centre as well as for descendants to commemorate, experience and understand their family’s story.
