Italian emigrants began arriving in numbers in Australia during the gold rushes of the 1850s, although there had been Italians in Australia from the beginning of European settlement.
Through private and public records, photographs, newspapers, letters and reports, the story of Italian emigration and life in a new and sometimes hostile land is told. They are poignant reminders of the living conditions and attitudes of the times.
