Every year many Jain families migrate to Melbourne, Australia. Many Jain students have come to Melbourne for study purposes. While, some of them go back upon completion of their studies, many decide to make Melbourne their home. Since year 2002, the number of Jains in Melbourne has risen from about 100 to 400, and it is expected to continue to rise over years to come.
Samvatsari Pratikramana on 15 September 2007 was attended by approximately 250 members. It has been the wish of this group to establish a Jain Sangh to expand our activities including building/managing Jain Derasar in Melbourne and spread the message of Jainism throughout Australia.
