Milk and Honey - but No Gold is the story of those who left behind their country of birth, and everyone and everything they knew, to become part of Australia's mass migration scheme in the years following World War II. Some were homeless and displaced refugees from the demolished cities of Europe. Others came from countries that seemed to offer little future. Lured by propagandist images of Australia's abundance, good working conditions, and home and vehicle ownership, they sought a new life for themselves and their families.
