The first Swiss citizen to set foot in Australia was a painter, John Waeber, who was part of Captain James Cook's third voyage to Australia in 1777. The Australia goldrushes of the 1850s and 1860s led over 2,000 Italian speaking Swiss to leave the Canton of Ticino and Romanisch speaking Canton of Graubunden in search of gold. German speaking Swiss nationals also arrived and were instrumental in establishing Victoria's wine industry.[1]
