This year AMES Australia celebrates its 70th year. For seven decades the organisation has been supporting newly arrived refugees and migrant settle in Australia, helping to build our marvellous multicultural society.

We will be sharing stories, images, recollections and more from staff, former students and others associated with AMES Australia over the years.

This site is a celebration of the organisation’s achievements in supporting the birth of multiculturalism and helping hundreds of thousands of people build new lives in Australia.
