[Abstract] We will consider some of the reasons for the little importance of Spanish and Galician migration to Australia, among them the long distance and the so called “White Australia” policies that discouraged them from joining their Anglo-Saxon counterparts at key periods. However, some feeble migration took place, even at the time of convict transportation, and later on with seminal figures such as Fray Rosendo Salvado, a Benedictine monk from Galicia who settled down in Western Australia.
