It's a nice tribute that is the first thing you see as you get off the ferry at Pyrmont Bay in Darling Harbour just beside the Maritime Museum. It's a worthy point of interest while in the area.

Fascinating read of the comments and seeing some familiar names. This shows how Australia was / is put together. People coming from all over the world for lots of reasons. Most with hope for the better.

The Welcome Wall is a great reminder of what makes this country the great place it is. The fact that we welcomed people from all over the world is documented with the names and arrival dates. This is a worthwhile place to visit.

Darling Harbour
The original docklands of Darling Harbour have been
transformed into a tourist mecca with entertainment
for the whole family. Cockle Bay Wharf offers dining
options from budget to upscale and million dollar
views of the harbour. Young crowds gather on weekends
for nightlife that ranges from salsa clubs to DJ's.
Families can visit the Chinese Garden of Friendship or
the Sydney Aquarium, one of the largest in the world.
