Guests at a Welcome Wall ceremony

Celebrate the latest Welcome Wall registrants at our regular unveiling ceremonies.

  • About the unveiling ceremony

    Honour your family's history with the Welcome Wall.

    The museum holds regular unveiling ceremonies to commemorate new registrants who have inscribed their family names on the wall.

    The ceremony provides guests with the opportunity to view the panel for the first time with their family and friends in what is always a moving and emotional ceremony.

    The Welcome Wall stands in honour of families who have migrated to Australia with registered names permanently engraved in bronze. Currently there are over 29,000 names on the Welcome Wall with representation from over 200 countries.

    2017 ceremonies

    The next unveiling ceremony will be in Sunday 10 September 2017.

    Registrations for the panel to be unveiled in September are now closed. Places are still available for panels to be unveiled in 2018. Find out more on how to honour your family name on the Welcome Wall
