This paper examines the ambiguous role of religion in multicultural Australia. Despite theoretical commitment to religious pluralism, there are some notable examples that highlight significant flaws in the application of Australia's multicultural ideals. A case study of a contemporary issue relating to Australian Aboriginal religion is provided to demonstrate the difficulty multicultural policies have in recognising the values of non-Christian religions.
