One of the first Ukrainian migrants to Australia was Mykhailo Hlyb, who established a sheep farm in the 1860s. Prior to World War I, up to 5,000 Ukrainians migrated to Australia. However, the main body of Ukrainians emigrated to Australia along with other nationalities in the post-World War II wave of refugees from Europe. Currently, the main concentrations of Ukrainians are located in Sydney and Melbourne.
