{{orthodoxyinaustralasia}}From the first [[Divine Liturgy]] celebrated at Kirribilli Point (Sydney) in 1820, New Zealand's first [[priest]] in 1910, Australia's first Exarch in 1913, and Australia and New Zealand's first [[bishop]] in 1924, right to the present day, '''Orthodoxy in Australasia''' has a short history that is extremely undocumented and, therefore, largely unseen. This article seeks to be a clearinghouse of information and links regarding the history and state of [[Orthodox Christianity]] in Australia, New Zealand, and (God willing) in Oceania.
