To a land of promise come Italian immigrants on the liner Australis; relatives and friends wave from the dock (below). Welcoming newcomers with temporary housing and assist ance, Victoria lures about a fourth of Australia's 185,000 annual arrivals. Once almost entirely British, immigrants now come in growing numbers from continental Europe. Czech Frank Kastanek (right) began as a sheepherder in 1948; today he owns a meat export business and collects old masters.
