Bonegilla Migrant Camp - Block 19 represents post war immigration and a defining change in Australia's immigration policy. Bonegilla was the largest and longest operating migrant reception and training centre of the post-war era. Bonegilla holds powerful connections for many people in Australia - there are currently an estimated 1.5 million descendents of migrants who spent time at Bonegilla.
Block 19, Bonegilla, survives as a rare example of post war migration centre and provides a strong sense of the migrant experience. Bonegilla is located on the banks of the Murray River near Albury-Wodonga, and an interpretative centre and self guided tours are available for visitors.
Bonegilla Migrant Camp - Block 19 was included in the National Heritage List on 7 December 2007.
