Life Onboard

Join us on a journey to learn about the hardships and risks early European migrants took to make South Australia their home.

Sessions are facilitated in a replica 1840’s third class passenger cabin, providing learners with an authentic experience. Learners foster deep understanding through hands-on activities, discovering what it was like to eat, sleep, work, play and learn on board a migrant vessel bound for South Australia in the 1800’s.
