The Australia’s National Monument to Migration is one of the museum’s most important and visible tributes to our migration heritage.

The Museum collects the stories of migrants to Australia and the Wall is one of our most important and visible ways of recognising the people behind these stories.

With more than 10 million people have crossed the world to settle in Australia, read some of our compelling stories exploring our migration heritage.
