Diverse Faiths of Tasmania

Diverse Faiths of Tasmania is a booklet introducing and exploring some of the many religions practiced in Tasmania.

In the 2011 census, over 60% of the Tasmanian population identified as being of a faith, whether it be Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism or one of the many other religions practiced in Australia and the world today. While the information contained is not representative of all faiths practiced in Tasmania, it provides a broad overview of major religious groups and key denominations. Community profiles in this booklet are of members of the Multicultural Council of Tasmania, and have been approved by the groups involved.

While we are not a religious organisation and not all our members subscribe to a faith, the Multicultural Council of Tasmania has many members who are of religiously diverse backgrounds. This resource has been developed in response to a reported rise in misunderstandings about faiths.

Copies of the booklet are available for $2.00 from our online shop as a resource for homes, schools and workplaces.
