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.

Previously, this article was a clearinghouse of information and links regarding the history and state of Orthodox Christianity in Australia and New Zealand; however, this article is now focused on Orthodoxy and any things that affect both Australia and New Zealand, and on any information on Orthodoxy in Oceania.
