The only good immigration in this country was the 1949 Snowy Scheme (i.e. European immigration).

Other immigration can go to buggery; doesn't do any good to our splendid, sunburnt country, much unlike proper European immigration—of which majorly increased our economy, particularly in hydroelecticity.

oops, and Protection Acts for Aboriginal peoples around the country was to ensure that those who weren’t expected to just die out, were rounded up onto missions and reserves to be assimilated into an imperial, white, English speaking nation.

I doubt if that poster would give a 4x for Aboriginal protection, coming from a more 50's picket fence , white faced scenario, either through lived or imagined experience.

Proper European immigration? What are you on about? those folk wouldn't have an interest in being navvies (regardless of their qualification) in the sun burnt country anymore.


Back packers do similar work these days. Australia is not very attractive for Europeans to immigrate to.

Europe in later years with EU offered opportunities to work nearer ones homeland. To return with ease for holidays and in emergency. Many countries offered great social welfare programs. Great pensions on retirement. Free education. Free hospitals of a very high standard.


Attractions emigrating to Australia considering the above, being exactly?
