Bonegilla Migrant Reception and Training Centre

The Bonegilla Migrant Reception and Training Centre was a camp set up for receiving and training migrants to Australia during the post World War II immigration boom. The camp was set on 130 hectares (320 acres) near the small town of Bonegilla in north east Victoria.[1] The camp, a former World War II Australian Army base, opened in 1947 and operated until 1971, over which period it received over 300,000 migrants.[1] It is estimated that over 1.5 million Australians are descended from migrants who spent time at Bonegilla.
