Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the history of Zoroastrian diaspora and the situations of Zoroastrians in Australia. Australian Zoroastrians in both Sydney and Melbourne are characterized by two features: their strong ties to the old country and a very firm commitment to their new one. In Sydney there have been cultural and sporting links with other Indian groups while in Melbourne there was, for many years, a straight refusal to be linked to a cross-community Indian organization. Both groups have positive perceptions of Australia.
