Oral history preservation tool
Bonegilla Migrant Reception and Training Centre was a camp
setup for receiving and training migrants to Australia during the post
World War II immigration boom. Bonegilla holds powerful connections
for many people in Australia. There are currently an estimated 1.5
million descendants of migrants who spent time at Bonegilla.
In 2011 the Australian Government began the process of developing
an Australian heritage strategy. Part of this process was proposed
an idea of an application for the preservation of the oral history.
