A Place to Call Home – Migrant Hostel Memories

A Place to Call Home - Migrant Hostel Memories. Nissen huts, boiled mutton, bottled milk and helping hands. For many migrants after World War II, for better or worse, hostels were their first 'homes'. Short or long term, good or bad, hostel life was always memorable.

Rekindle memories with vivid photographs of life in Australia's migrant hostels. Unfamiliar sights, sounds and food. Friendships formed, challenges faced. The beginnings of a new life in Australia.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
