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. Use our Bonegilla day trip app to add Bonegilla Migrant Experience and other attractions to your Bonegilla vacation plans.
