Kinchela Boys Home

Kinchela Boys Home is established by the Aboriginal Protection Board. The Home is intended for Aboriginal boys removed from their families as part of the process of 'assimiliation'. The victims of this process eventually became known as the Stolen Generation. The Home houses between 40 and 60 boys until it is closed in 1970. Justice Hal Wootten’s Reports, for the Aboriginal Deaths in Custody Royal Commission, document the brutal punishment and sexual abuse suffered by these boys in the Kinchela Home, or later.
