On 16 January 1948 the first Displaced Person immigrants arrived at the North Camp, Yallourn North. They were 48 unmarried men, from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Over the next four years, many hundreds, even thousands more, would arrive to work for the SEC. This was the beginning of post WW2 mass migration to Gippsland. The exhibition of photographs, documents and memorabilia celebrates Yallourn North’s rich migrant history before, during and after WW2 from all countries.
