People from the Aeolian Islands have been coming to Australia since the mid 19th century thus setting up patterns of chain migration that are still active today. Over time they have formed well-established communities most significantly in Sydney, Melbourne and Fremantle characterized by their cohesion, solidarity and cultural practices. This paper proposes to examine some aspects of the history of the Sydney Aeolian community over the first thirty years of the 20th century, a period that marks the affirmation and consolidation of a distinctly identifiable community in Sydney, as well as to raise some questions and provide some examples that should contribute to ongoing research.
