Where did you stay and what was your experience? MikeParticipant Rank : Early SettlerNov 1968Fairsky Pennington@kambubu October 10, 2016 at 5:13 pm #1789 My parents arrived in Adelaide at the Pennington Migrant Hostel on Nov 2 1968, having landed at Melbourne and traveled on the Overland train to Adelaide, then bus to Pennington. I’m curious if any others who are on this site were there at that time…? Pennington was composed of nissan huts. Only a memorial park remains in its place. I took my aged parents to visit it for the first time a year ago. Memories. My parents stayed only a couple of weeks before moving down to Naracoorte, SA, where my dad had work.
