What's On

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 are available in the centre from Tuesday to Saturday to assist you with your family history and general research projects. We cater to all ages and levels of interest. If you're not able to visit us in person, you can ask us a question online.
