Old Worlds – New Beginnings, The 70th Anniversary of Greta Migrant Camp
In June 1949, a group of 600 refugees – many of them families displaced by World War II – arrived at a disused army camp in Greta, regional NSW. It was the beginning of their new life in Australia.
This exhibition seeks to highlight the social, economic and cultural contribution these people, and many subsequent migrants, made to the Maitland region. It will include oral histories, micro-documentaries, artefacts contributed by former Greta residents.
Week day groups by appointment.
