As per Wikipedia:WikiProject Demographics of Australia/Booian Australian importance more than 100,000 Australian residents declared their ancestry on the 2006 Australian census as being Polish hence this article's rating as Demographics-importance = high --Matilda talk 00:40, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

who could not return to a free Poland - is it clear?[edit]

They could not return to a free Poland because Poland was under Soviet control. Many emigrants came from the areas annected to the Soviet Union.Xx236 (talk) 06:32, 2 August 2016 (UTC)

Polish community of Melbourne[edit]

It is unlikely Polish community of Melbourne has stand-alone notability, so I propose a merge and redirect here. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 08:18, 12 April 2017 (UTC)

@Piotrus: Agreed. From personal experience, I can tell you that they function in the same manner as other Slavic diasporic groups in Australia (with local and interstate youth and community groups, etc.). If you'd like to merge the Melbourne article, I'll get around to updating statistics as I'm slowly extrapolating information from the 2016 census for all the articles on ethnic groups in Australia. It's going to take a while as the census information is not well presented as it has been in the past, nor does the interface allow for archiving. It's certainly not Factfinder! Highly frustrating stuff. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 03:48, 30 August 2017 (UTC)
@Iryna Harpy: Done! I've also prodded Polish Festival @ Federation Square. In Google News I see some passing coverage that is unlikely to suffice for notability ([1]), still perhaps you'd think it should go to AfD? Doubt anyone else but reviewing admin will see that anyway :( Or maybe you think few sentences could be merged here to? --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 07:27, 30 August 2017 (UTC)
@Piotrus: Definitely OSE. Again, like all Australian cities, Melbourne groans under the weight of multicultural events (see the govt. multicultural initiative). They've always been big drawcards, and there actually quite a few in Melbourne (such as this Italian festival) - and other major cities - which sprang up organically, have become institutions over decades, and are far more likely candidates for an article as being notable in their own right. A line or two can always be added to this article at a later date if this festival does become a genuine 'institution' with some RS coverage. It possibly will, but I don't want to go CRYSTAL. --Iryna Harpy (talk) 19:52, 30 August 2017 (UTC)
