The first big wave of Buddhist to arrive in Australia were Vietnamese and this group is by far the biggest single group of Buddhist living in Australia.
Many Buddhist monks visited Australia including the Dalia lama, who now resides in India due to the Chinese takeover of Tibet, but it was not until the 1970s that a resident monk (named Venerable Somaloka) arrived from Sri Lanka and helped establish Buddhism in Australia, his presence and hard work helped the growth of conversions to Buddhism in Australia.
Sri Lanka has a majority Buddhist population and live in relative harmony with Muslims, Hindus and Christians neighbours..
