Immigration created our fine nation, and it has fed its growth throughout its history. In the past decade, Indian-Australians have experienced more growth than any other nationality, becoming the largest population behind the British and Chinese-Australians.

Like many migrant groups in Australia, immigration to outbreak was severely limited through the 1850s Gold Rush up until Post WW-II.

However, the new millennium brought a vital infusion of Indian-Australians contributing to a thriving economy and growing Aussie population.
