Migration administrative records, including Bonegilla ID Cards, passenger and ship lists, are held at the National Archives of Australia.

The Bonegilla ID Cards exist for most people who came through the centre and provide information on the dates they arrived and left, where they went to, the ship they came on, the block they lived in, and more.
