Taking the title of a Little River Band song, I wonder why so many Europeans migrated to Australia after World War Two?

For the same reasons why many migrated to the US and Canada, after the war.

Australia was a long way away from the problems in Europe at that time, and was percieved as offering more freedom and stability.

A lot of European people migrated to Australia after WW2 because of the war in Europe and the war left a lot of these European countries (especially Germany, Italy and England) poor and struggling so yeah.

I learnt this in Year 9..
