With regard to cultures and faith traditions, Australia is one of the most diverse nations in the world. At the same time, it is remarkably if not perfectly harmonious. What lessons can be gleaned from its successes and failures? This article will consider aspects of interfaith dialogue in Australia within the three categories of exclusivism, pluralism and inclusivism, and with particular reference to the Catholic tradition which I know best. The Australian experience may be useful to compare and contrast with other contexts.
