The experiences of migration are key to Australian oral history collections held in national and state institutions, and in community-based organizations. These memories have been widely utilized in research projects, books, radio programmes, websites, films and documentaries, museum collections and exhibitions, and heritage sites associated with migration. Digital technologies have had a recent impact on memory practices relating to migration. This chapter surveys these developments in Australia, arguing that oral testimonies have influenced the commemoration of migration to Australia, and contributed to public debates about migration, multiculturalism and the reception and treatment of refugees and asylum seekers.
