ABC Wednesdays - M for migration

"The Immigrants" is a bronze statue located at the Migration Museum in Adelaide. It was designed by Italian sculptor Aurelio Fortelaan and was created by the Guastini Artistic Foundry of Vicenza in Italy.

Adelaide's Migration Museum has numerous displays depicting migration to our state; starting with the British in 1836 through to the current day. SA is now very much a multi-cultural state, and this museum tells the stories of the groups of people who immigrated; who came, why they came, how they came and what they brought with them - new skills and ideas that have enhanced our culture.

Love the bronze statue. I have visited Adelaide many times as son and family used to live there but never got to see this museum.

Australia just have the latest batch of immigrants from China. We were worried they would come here.
