Liverpool Migration History

This book highlights Liverpool’s rich multicultural history by revealing and promoting the importance of migration and settlement in Sydney’s South-West. Migrants have transformed the environment, politics, economics and culture of the City of Liverpool.

Liverpool Migration History Project includes a history by Virginia Macleod and object profiles by Stephen Thompson, NSW Migration Heritage Centre. It is an illustrated history of settlement in the Liverpool City local government area. The history researches all waves of migration from the late 18th century to the present including the First Fleet Colonial Europeans, convict secondary punishment, Italian and German wartime internees at Holsworthy, post-Second World War ‘New Australians’ and post-White Australia migration by Indo-Chinese refugees and Arabic-speaking communities.
