The exhibition appeared one sided, it appeared that immigration to Australia, only started around 10 years ago. Did show little about Australian history of immigration starting over 200 years ago. Entrance fee of $17.00 was excessive.

Interesting place to visit if you are interested in immigration stories. Probably not that interesting for kids. Close to the Aquarium and Casino.

A quick visit turns into hours. Everything from colonial migration through to the latest wave of boat people. Why is Melbourne so culturally different?

We have heard and seen migratory birds and it was something similar to feel that we humans can truly traverse this Globe and our Earth so easily despite all odds.

As immigrant myself (to NZ) was really moving to read the experiences (sometimes harrowing) of migrants coming to Aus.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
