Journeys of a Lifetime

No matter when they arrived, all immigrants are linked by the common experience of a journey.

Over the past two centuries the immigration journey to Australia has changed from a perilous sea voyage of up to 3 months to a routine flight lasting up to 24 hours. Changing transport has not only shortened the journey, but made it more comfortable and affordable.

The journey remains one of the most memorable aspects of any immigration experience.

The Journeys Gallery, also known as the Long Room of Old Customs House, features a 17-metre replica ship where visitors can experience the changes in sea travel first hand from the 1840s to 1950s.

Feedback: My family including my eldest brother emigrated to Australia as Ten Pound Poms in 1952. They sailed on the TSS Cameronia from Glasgow (Scotland) to Melbourne (Australia) with the voyage taking 6 weeks. He was physically moved when seeing this exhibition in the Immigration Museum. He said the exhibition took him back 50 years and gave an excellent idea of what life was like on the ship. 10/10
