A Place to Call Home?

More than 7.5 million immigrants have arrived in Australia since World War II. While some returned to their country of origin, the vast majority have chosen to remain, enriching the nation’s cultural diversity.

Today about 46 per cent of Australians were either born overseas or have at least one parent who was.

Snakes in the laundry, dreary meals of mutton and a British reluctance to shower are just some of the memories post-war immigrants have shared in A Place to Call Home? Migrant hostel memories.

A national touring exhibition developed and presented by the National Archives of Australia.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government’s Visions of Australia program.
