Bosnian Australians or Australian Bosnians are people of Australia who are of Bosnian ancestry or come from Bosnia and Herzegovina. According to the 2006 Australian census 26,630 Australians were born in Bosnia and Herzegovina. According to Embassy estimates there are some 50,000 people of Bosnian origin living in Australia [3 ]
Immigration [ edit ]
Most of the Bosnians in Australia migrated to the country throughout the 20th century and more recently as a result of the
Bosnian War which took place between April 1992 and December 1995.
The earliest signs of Bosnian community life have been evident since the 1960s with the establishments of "Bosnian Islamic Societies" in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, and Brisbane.
Bosnian migrants who arrived in Australia in the 1960s made important contributions to modern-day Australia through their role in the construction of the
Snowy Mountains Scheme in New South Wales.
