This group of immigrants found work in agricultural fields, road and rail building projects as well as in many gold mines.
Further immigration was barred by the Australian government with the passing of the Immigration Restriction Act of 1901.
This has resulted in a significant Indian student population in Australia with the campus turning into a popular hunting ground for dating partners.
However after India’s independence from Britain there was an increase in migration from India to Australia by the Anglo-Indians and the Indian-born British citizens.
In the last few decades the migrants have mainly comprised of skilled workers looking for better economic opportunities in Australia’s growing economy as well as students enrolling in Australia’s educational institutions.
Again there are direct migrants from India while some have settled in Australia after living in Singapore, Malaysia or other countries.
All these factors influence cultural practices, including dating and marriage, of the ethnic Indian population in Australia.
