Melbourne Immigration Museum
German immigration to Victoria began in 1849, when a need for local vineyard labour prompted the Victorian government to attract German workers. Today, around 30 000 German-born people live in Victoria, making the community one of the largest ethnic groups in the state. The Melbourne Immigration Museum documents some of the stories of these German migrants.
Where: Old Customs House, 400 Flinders St, Melbourne.
