Bhutanese Migration History – book launch

Launched at SydWest Multicultural Services-Participate Australia AGM on 2 November 2023, Bhutanese Migration History – a life in three countries is an important contribution to the history of migration to Australia.

Check out a recent video from Om Dhungel, a local Bhutanese community leader and key contributor to this recording of history.

This book was published by SydWest Multicultural Services and written by Virgina Macleod, with the assistance of the Australian Historical Society and the NSW Government through the Create NSW Cultural Grants Program and in collaboration with the Bhutanese community.

Having collaborated with the Bhutanese community for nearly 15 years, I have developed a deep appreciation for their kindness and the strong bonds they share, ensuring the success of their settlement in Blacktown. I feel humbled to be able to contribute to this significant piece of Western Sydney’s history, said Elfa Moraitakis, CEO of SydWest Multicultural Services.
