The ‘’White Australian’’ immigration policy initiated in 1851 lasted until 1951 after which date the country started to accept non-European immigrants.
After a bilateral agreement between Turkey and Australia, the first group of migrants from Turkey settled in Australia in 1968. It is estimated that today between 100,000 and 150,000 Australian citizens came from Turkey. In 21st century Australia, one fourth of the population is born abroad.
This book, the second of a series, by the same authors started with ‘’50 Years of Turkish Migration to Germany’’ and is the first documented study of Turkish migration to Australia.
