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.

    If you would like to register your family's name for the next ceremony in 2017 there are still places available. Find out more.

    2017 ceremonies

    The next unveiling ceremony will be in Sunday 7 May 2017.

    If you’d like to honour your family name on the Welcome Wall, please register online.

    If you have a question, or would like to receive a registration pack, please get in touch.
