Formatted abstract
This article gives a brief account of the background to contemporary Paganism, its emergence in Australia, discusses some of its key players and publications, and then discusses the increasing focus on Paganism as a nature religion. It demonstrates how practitioners have had to employ innovation and a re-working of the myth cycle because of the particular environments within which they find themselves. The southern hemisphere raises some unique problems which have to be reconciled, and Aboriginal Australian spirituality, with its deep connections with the land, has had an effect on this innovation as well.
