The Macleay Valley has a rich migrant heritage and the Kempsey Museum has a nationally significant photographic collection that illustrates this proud past. The museum has many oral and written stories to offer the public a rich and rewarding experience.

The Macleay Valley has had migration and settlement from German, Indian, Lebanese, Syrian, Italian, Dutch, Greek, West Indian and Maltese families. Their stories include the internment of German families at Trial Bay in 1915.

Many of the Macleay’s migrants were early hawkers, shop proprietors who established greengrocers, and those who opened haberdashery shops, menswear, mercery, ladieswear, cafes, tearooms and milk bars.

This exhibition will display photographs drawn from the significant and highly valuable Angus McNeil Photographic Collection and stories compiled from local and other records.
