This article seeks to compile the statistics of the Orthodox Church in Australia into a single place.

Orthodox in Australia - Census 2001

  • Number of Orthodox in Australia: 529 444, or 2.82% of Australia's population.

There are difficulties with using the Australian census as defining how many Orthodox are of various nationalities, as Greek Orthodox was a box able to be ticked, whereas to be included in any other jurisdiction required writing in the name.

  • Albanian Orthodox: 159
  • Antiochian Orthodox: 7 525
  • Greek Orthodox: 402 997
  • Romanian Orthodox: 1 471
  • Russian Orthodox: 18506

  • Unspecified Orthodox: 38 441

It must be noted that these figures are, for various reasons (eg the language limitations of recent migrants), unreliable. An internal census by the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia and New Zealand found there to be 37 490 Orthodox in the Archdiocese.
