Migration to Australia
Armenian settlement in Australia can be traced back to the mid 19th century in the era of the gold rush. The second settlement began after the First World War when a number of Armenians looked to Australia as a safe have to colonise. However, real migration started after the Second World War and in the 1960’s when Armenians became displaced from Far and Near Easter countries. The organised migration of Armenians to Australia saw settlement of communities in Sydney and Melbourne.
