The Polish in South Australia
--The Polish Hill River district is now celebrated for fine Reisling wine. Originally settled by Polish immigrants fleeing political persecution in the mid-1800's. They farmed small acreages. The small catholic church is still in use today and is treasured by the South Australian Polish community (most of whom arrived as WWII refugees.) Unfortunately there are no living descendants of those early Polish settlers.
