    Some migrants loved the hostel they stayed in and some absolutely hated it. Where did you stay and what was your experience?

    Nov 1968


    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.
