East Hills Hostel was in Hammondville East - thats what we used to use anyway. Has anyone looked at the site on Google earth? It's all demolished now but you can make out the circular flower bed in the middle. A bit sad to see it like that Sad

Welcome to the forum.

I was across the street at Heathcote Rd 1960-61.

Hammondville East rings a bell. Hammondville was a sleepy little suburb a few miles up the road towards Liverpool.

Yes, the old site looks pretty desolate. The neighbouring bushland along the Georges River and Williams Creek is now part of a "wetland reserve", so maybe the site will just go back to nature.

All the best
Chris

Hi Len, just came across your forum today as I was doing some research about the hostel my family lived in when we arrived in Australia in 1967.

Here's another to add to your list of addresses:

Broughton Migrant Hostel
22 Church Street
Burwood NSW 2134

cheers...geri
