1820-1830Between 1788 and 1900 over 1,000,000 people immigrated to Australia. Most of them were from the British Isles, but some were from Europe and Asia. Before 1900 there were 4 classes of immigration:
Over 160,000 convicts (most from the British Isles) were sent to Australia. The British Government first sent convicts to New South Wales, Australia in 1788, after the American Revolution. Because of their own population growth, NSW refused to accept convicts after 1842. Convicts were sent to Tasmania (formerly Van Diemens Land) in 1803. Western Australian accepted male convicts only from 1850 to 1868.
