Journeys In Fairfield – Migrant Hostels

Leave a comment

Come to Whitlam Library during the month of April to witness our Migrant Hostels exhibition, part of a series titled Journeys In Fairfield. Check our opening hours and come in for a visit!

The exhibition highlights Cabramatta and Villawood migrant hostels, which were operational between the 1950s and 1980s. It shows everyday hostel life, featuring families who made the journey to an unknown land by all methods and means in order to make a new life for themselves, and to enrich ours in turn.
