A place to relax, talk to helpful staff, and research family and migration history.
The Immigration Discovery Centre, set in the beautifully restored 19th century vaults of Customs House, is the perfect place for learning about family history, exploring Australia’s migration history, sharing personal stories, researching contemporary issues, and understanding our culturally diverse community.
Snuggle in our comfy lounges with a book from our unique reference library, explore our collections online and vast web resources, or enjoy the screen lounge showcasing stories of cultural celebrations.
Staff in the centre can help answer questions to assist you in your family history and general research projects, we cater to all ages and levels of interest. And if you're not able to visit us in person, you can ask us a question online.
Please note: the Immigration Discovery Centre will be closed on Friday 7 October for the Seniors Festival event: Italians in Australia.
