Bonegilla and Yackandandah reef knots of recall bind fabric of multi-national New Australia
Bonegilla was the first Australian home for about 310,000 refugees and assisted migrants from more than 50 countries. Over time Bonegilla became Victoria's 'Little Europe'.
It was showery and cool as we met Australia's biggest and longest operating migrant centre.
The weather added reality to the experience of the remnant huts and buildings of Block 19. Spartan corrugated iron roof and walls, but this heritage centre touches the core of current day Australia.
Bonegilla speaks of courage. People game to have a go way outside their comfort zones.

Complicated caravan insurance needs real professional understanding working for you
The sudden death of three friends, all within a month showed Alan and Pam, a Victorian couple aged in the 55 - 65 bracket the reality of life. Could it happen to them?
They decided to wind-up their home, go on the road, and work and live in their 21ft caravan.
Pam and Alan need cover for their vehicle which is being used for business, their caravan, tools of trade plus computers, printer, cameras, phones, WiFi etc, all at no fixed address, and then additional contents cover for personal and camping items at any location in Australia.
It is essential to use a broker who actually understands what you are really doing, Alan says.
Get your towing head together and be a safer caravan camper
The closer a tow ball is to the rear axle of the tow vehicle the better. This really is a case of getting your towing head together.
It is one big reason 4WD's are often chosen as tow vehicles.
In addition to being heavier vehicles the design requirements of a 4WD, which must have serious entry and exit angles front and back to cope with off-road work, means the tow ball is not way aft, waving about. This means better, safer towing.
