The Zoroastrian Diaspora

John R. Hinnells

Oxford University Press

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.
