For example, in the Victorian suburb of Warrndyte and surrounds Italians make up roughly 2% of the area. Today, Italians span the fourth largest ethnic group in Australia. There was a large influx of Italian migrants during the Gold Rush resulting in a heavy concentration of Italians residing in Victoria, which is true even today.

 

As Australia is comparatively a new country, it makes total sense that one of the major ethnic groups to migrate and contribute …
