On his very first day living in Melbourne, Indian migrant Vinit Sharma sought out a Hindu temple.
The 33-year old says worship is essential for him.
Hinduism is Australia's fastest-growing religion.
In the 2021 census, more than 684 thousand people identified as Hindu - a 55 per cent increase.
The result is due to the arrival of a greater number of migrants from India and Nepal.
Christianity remains the most common religion in Australia.
But for the first time, fewer than half of the population - at 43.9% - identified as Christian.
The number of people reporting 'no religion' continues its upward trend, now at 38.9% of the population.
This raises the possibility that at the next census non-believers could replace Christians as the biggest cohort.
While the National Christian Life Survey shows the number of active Anglican worshippers remains stable, the denomination is aging.
