Administrative history

There have been Anglican clergy in Australia since the arrival of the First Fleet in 1788, and the continent was initially part of the Dicoese of Calcutta until the formation of the Diocese of Australia in 1836 under Bishop W.G. Broughton. The church was constituted as an autonomous body in 1962 when the Constitution of the Church of England in Australia was drawn up. The name was changed to 'Anglican Church of Australia' in 1981. The church meets nationally every three years at the General Synod, with representatives from all 23 dioceses.
