Malayali Origins in Australia

The first Malayali to set up business in Australia was George Varughese. He enrolled in Sydney University in 1963 as the only Indian student. The birth of his son in 1970 was thought to be the first Indian to be born in Australia.

One of the Malayali community’s biggest role models is Peter Varghese, whose parents migrated to Australia when he was eight. In 1980, he began serving as an Australian diplomat eventually becoming high commissioner to Malaysia in 2000.

In 2009, he became the first Australian high commissioner to India of Indian origin and is seen as instrumental in helping bilateral relations in Australia.

Sadly, the Malayali journey has not always been an easy one in Australia. However, there is now thought to be over 55,000 Malayali-Australians who shine in many aspects of Australian business and life. The Malayali community is thriving and Kerala food has become a popular addition to the Australian palate.
