Abstract This Bahai Library Online document contains The History of the Bahá'í Community in the Northern Territory of Australia and adjacent regions: 1947-1997. This history is written in some three dozen short instalments totalling about 10000 words.
Notes Most of these brief instalments here at Bahá'í Library Online(BLO) were published in the Northern Lights, The Regional Newsletter of the Bahá'í Council for The Northern Territory(NT)of Australia. The instalments appeared from 2001 to 2004. Some of them have been edited in the years 2004 to 2012. These instalments drew on information in Bahá'í archives, especially those in Darwin, Katherine and Alice Springs as well as what were then called Regional Teaching Committees. The author also draws on personal experience from the years when he and his wife and son lived in the NT from 1982 to 1986. The result is the first history of the Bahá'í Faith in this territory of Australia and the remote regions of Australia that adjoin Australia's Northern Territory.

The author is an internatonal pioneer from the Canadian Bahá'í community who moved to South Australia in 1971. He is now retired and living in Tasmania. Also included here at BLO are several published pieces found at sites on the internet. Some tangential discussion of the Bahá'í experience in Western Queensland, the north of South Australia and Western Australia, regions adjoining the NT during this same period---1947 to 1997---is also included.

The author has written:(i) a separate history of Tasmania, (ii) a history of rural and regional WA and (iii) a history of northern South Australia---all of which are kept now in the files of the several Bahá'í Councils. Most of the history of the Bahá'í Faith in the NT: 1947 to 1997 is not found here. The files of the Bahá'í Council for the NT contain most of the author's resources for future use by historians.
