A Ticket to Paradise?

Sat 4 Mar - Sun 4 June 2017
10am - 5pm
A Greek girl, sent across the world to marry a man she’d never met; an African journalist fleeing for his life; and a stateless baby born in India to Iranian parents, are just some of the human stories that feature in A Ticket to Paradise? The exhibition, from the National Archives of Australia, examines the rich diversity of Australian immigrants and the government’s ambitious plans after World War II to encourage mass migration.

The National Archives and Newcastle Museum are encouraging other post-war immigrants and their families to contribute their personal memories on iPads provided in the exhibition or online at www.destinationaustralia.gov.au .
