WA Maritime Museum

More than one third of Western Australia’s population was born overseas. The Welcome Walls projects pay tribute to those migrants who arrived by sea, landing at Fremantle or Albany, and to the many benefits they gave to their new home, enriching the lives of all Western Australians.

In Fremantle, over 400 panels commemorating the names of migrants who arrived through this area have been erected at the Western Australian Maritime Museum at Victoria Quay. These panels are available to view outside the Western Australian Maritime Museum, and details about these welcome can be found online on the Welcome Walls website.
