Destination Australia: Ports of Immigration

The exhibition documented the incredible journey undertaken by these brave people, stories of perilous sea travel, exotic experiences at stopovers in foreign countries along the way and the life-long friendships and romances formed on board.

Along side many personal recollections and treasured objects, the exhibition provided an historical overview of immigration by ship, giving insight into the experiences of people from around the world who have made Australia their home.
