The Immigration Museum is located in the Old Customs House on Flinders Street. Initially we might not have been interested but it was highly recommended by a friend. I’m glad we went. Much of Australia’s history is tied to its immigrants. The museum helped fill in the blanks for some of bits of history we have picked up along our travels. We learned about British influence on Australian culture, role of Chinese immigrants, race issues, and policies to increase population to provide a better national defense. This might be my favorite museum we visited in Australia. It is definitely worth an hour or two of your time.
