Abstract The Lebanese community in Queensland began as a small relatively segregated group. These immigrants were known as 'Syrians'. Faced with limited employment options, yet determined to improve their economic status, most Lebanese men and a significant proportion of women started life in Queensland as hawkers and, as a result, they spread widely and thinly through the colony and then state.
