A film about the city of Hobart, Tasmania, as seen through the eyes of European migrants. Includes observational footage of Hobart, nearby agriculture, factory work, schools and shops.

Directed by Barry Williams. Made for the Department of Immigration by Film Australia in 1975.

A quote from the film: 'When we left our own countries, we pulled up our roots, and we personally will be migrants until the day we die. We will strive to obtain citizenship. That’s as far as we can assimilate … We will always remain Europeans and we don’t want to become anything else. We only want to live our lives in this beautiful country, where we have space, clean air and far less pollution than over in Europe and we want to be left in peace.'
