The Hindu Council of Australia works with Hindus in Australia and those of other faiths looking for an inter-faith dialogue.

The HCA was founded in 1998 with an aim to create a strong and unified Hindu community in Australia. Since the HCA was founded, it has been acting as a representative of the Hindu community in Australia in dealing with the federal, state and local governments, apart from reaching out to other organisations and institutions.

The HCA will act to assist and promote the activities of its member organisations, but does not exercise control over the internal matters of any of its member organisations.

O God Ganesha (large bodied with a large belly), radiant as millions of Suns, Please, remove obstacles in all of my tasks all the time.
