Australia has a positive relationship with Paraguay and diplomatic relations were established in 1974.
Interestingly, a utopian socialist settlement in Paraguay was named New Australia, and was founded by the New Australian Movement. The colony was founded in 1893 as Colonia Nueva Australia and comprised 238 people. Some 2000 descendants of the New Australia colonists still live in Paraguay.
