The '''Serbian Orthodox Church in Australia and New Zealand''', headquartered in Canberra, ACT, and Elaine, VIC, is the descriptive term of two parallel dioceses in Australia and New Zealand: the Patriarchal ''Serbian Orthodox Diocese of Australia and New Zealand''; and the ''Serbian Orthodox Diocese of Australia and New Zealand, New Gracanica Metropolitanate''. Currently it is headed by [[Milutin (Knezevic) of Valjevo|Milutin (Knežević)]].
At the May 2006 Holy Synod, [[Hieromonk]] [[Irinej (Dobrijevic) of Australia and New Zealand|Irinej (Dobrijević)]] was appointed to head the Patriarchal diocese, and administer the New Gracanica diocese.
Until his October 2006 enthronement, however, Bishop Milutin will remain head of the dioceses.
