60th Anniversary of Post-WW2 Migration

The NSW Migration Heritage Centre celebrated the 60th anniversary of mass migration following the Second World War at a reception at the Powerhouse Museum on 12 March 2007. 1947 is regarded as the beginning of Australia’s broader migration program which included non-British migrants.

Hundreds of guests graced the Powerhouse Museum for an evening reception on 12 March 2007.

The Sydney Morning Herald and Melbourne Age collaborated with the Centre to produce a web exhibition entitled ‘The Last Wave – Beyond A White Australia’.
