Abstract

This article is about local engagement with a post-war immigration
reception centre. I explain immediate host community perceptions of
and interactions with Bonegilla, its residents and ex-residents while
the centre was operating. Then, I trace the way locals, working with ex-residents,
created and championed Block 19 Bonegilla as a memory place
and heritage asset. In attempting to fathom the local circumstances of
Bonegilla’s memorialisation, I emphasise the roles played by locals and
local government. I portray the heritage-making of Bonegilla as a facet of
a broader process of the place-making of Wodonga and Albury–Wodonga
