The Carinia label has been in Aurtalia since the early 1950s issuing 78s with music from far flung places.
The 45s came in around 1960 and kept going well into the 1980s. 
Carinia was an Independent company Melbourne based with their own distribution and operated in a similar manner to Sydney based “Minstrel” set up catering for European popular music from labels such as Telefunken (Germany) Elite Special (Switzerland) Ricordi (Italy) among others. During the 1970s, if you were a lover of Hammond Organ or Accordion music, you were very well catered for. There must have been 20 volumes of Hammond Pops albums alone.
Availability of 45s were limited as they seemed to be restricted to specialty stores and not in general record bars. Also the label went dormant a couple of times, possibly owing to the general lack of interest in foreign music with the general record buying public.
