Bonegilla Partnerships

AlburyCity works in partnership with a number of organisations to further the Bonegilla Migrant Experience. As part of our on-going commitment to the Bonegilla Collection, AlburyCity's Cultural Services worked in partnership with Parklands AlburyWodonga and the City of Wodonga to put in an application to the Federal Government's Job Fund for the Bonegilla Migrant Experience Heritage Park. 

In essence the application has three main objectives: 

  • Improve maintenance and access to the heritage listed site (Parklands Albury-Wodonga).
  • Provide visitor staff and audience development programs at the site (City of Wodonga
  • Generate a semi-permanent, on-site exhibition, utilising the Bonegilla collection (AlburyCity)

AlburyCity's contribution is to manage the exhibition design and installation at the Bonegilla site.
