February 2010
Following the closure of the exhibition at Springvale the community lobbied for a permanent exhibition.  This was not practical but the Victorian Multicultural Commission agreed to fund a website which would contain the exhibition and all the background research material.

On 23 February 2010, the Enterprise Hostel website was officially opened by the Chair of the Victorian Multicultural Commission, George Lekakis.  Again the function was generously hosted by the Lexington Gardens Retirement Village. The website can be seen at: www.enterprisehostel.org

On the day of the website launch, Salvador Castro, a former resident and now professional photographer presented a replica of the official Enterprise Opening plaque to Christine Smitten, the Manager of Lexington Gardens Retirement Village. A series of Salvador’s photographs now hang on the walls of Lexington Gardens.
