This museum tells the story of the persons who came to Australia, their diversity and the trials and tribulations of settling in a new country. The displays showing how people had to take tests to be considered for entry into the country were great.

A relatively small but well presented mix of artifacts, static and interactive displays relating to the multicultural mix of immigrants to Australia, together with their effect on the indigenous population. Most stimulating.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
