For many migrants after World War II for better or worse hostels were their first homes. Short or long term good or bad hostel life was always memorable.

Rekindle memories with vivid photographs of life in Australias migrant hostels. Unfamiliar sights sounds and food. Friendships formed challenges faced. The beginnings of a new life in Australia.

This project has been assisted by the Australian Governments Visions of Australia program.
