It seems that Australia was not friendly to the Ahmadiyya Movement and didn’t allow them to send a missionary until the late 1970’s. The Ahmadiyya jamaat seems to have been established in 1983 (see mosques around the world). The Khalifa, Mirza Tahir Ahmad visited in 1983 and 1989. The 5th Khalifa visited in 2006 and 2013.

By 2020, there are about 3 Ahmadiyya places of worship and a 4th planned. We thus estimate that there are roughly 1000 Ahmadi’s in all of Australia, men, women and children. They all seem to be Pakistani immigrants from the past 40 years.
Ahmadiyya Missionaries working in the country?

We know that Inam ul Haq Kausar is working in the country, he is the Amir and missionary in-charge, he was in the USA as a murrabi for many years and seems to have been sent to Australia as a punishment for his son’s leaving Ahmadiyya (Zia ul Haq Kausar and Sunny Kausar).

Per Ahmadiyya sources, Sufi Muhammad Hassan Musa Khan was an ahmadi missionary working in the country.

He delivered a Friday Sermon in Australia on 9-30-1983. There doesn’t seem to be a Ahmadiyya mosque. The land for a mosque at Marsden Park (Sydney) was purchased in 1983. Mirza Tahir Ahmad, Khalifatul Masih IV laid the foundation stone on 30 September on his first visit to Australia in 1983.

The first missionary, Mr. Shakil Ahmad Munir and his wife, Mrs. Naima Munir, came to Australia on 5 July 1985. He is the Amir and missionary in-charge.

The Ahmadiyya Jamaat in Australia was registered as the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association of Australia Inc. on 7 September 1987.

The Khalifa, Mirza Tahir Ahmad, seems to have visited Australia again. Shakil Ahmad Munir was still the Amir and missionary in-charge. The first Ahmadiyya place of worship is opened in July of 1989, its called, “Baitul Huda Mosque”, Sydney, Australia.

Australia is mentioned in the famous book, “Mosques Around the World”.

Ahmadiyya Centre – Melbourne Australia

Leisureland Fair was an amusement park which operated on this site from 1984 to 1992. It is now a housing estate with the only reference to it being a street named after it. The amusement park was situated on a large plot of land with a steam train which would take passengers from the carpark to the park itself. The park consisted of a large number of attractions including a custom built steel roller coaster, log flume, waterslides, mini golf, a function centre and various other rides. The only remaining part of Leisureland Fair is the former Function Centre, otherwise known as “The Castle”. This was renovated into a Community Centre and Place of Worship by the Ahmadiyya Movement. The Ahmadiyya Centre Melbourne was officially opened by Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih the 5th on his blessed Asia Pacific tour 2013. He led the Friday prayers and Friday sermon on the opening of this Centre on 11 October 2013.

On 23 October 2013, the World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat and Fifth Khalifa, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad delivered the keynote address at a Special Reception held to mark the forthcoming opening of the Masroor Mosque in Brisbane.

Australia Day celebrations at the mosque includes a flag-raising ceremony, the singing of the national anthem and a barbecue.[3]
