Bonegilla Migrant Experience has National Heritage listing, a must visit place on any tour of historic Australia.

Built as an Army Camp during the Second World War the site later served as Australia's largest and longest operating migrant reception centre.

The historic buildings and artefacts are remarkably intact and visitors can walk around the park to either reminisce, or learn first hand about the migrant experience.

You are invited to inspect the site which features the remnant huts and buildings of Block 19; one of the original 24 accommodation blocks and other buildings that once covered a 130 hectares.
