While Newman never physically visited Australia, he certainly exercised a profound influence on both the Anglican and Catholic communities in this country. The Oxford Movement, in which he played a leading part, provided a theological basis for Australia's first Anglican Bishops, now that their Church was no longer 'The Established' Church. In his Catholic days Newman provided Australia's Catholic Laity with the reassurance that they could find a place in society and be able to defend it. The numerous 'Newman Societies' which sprang up in Australian Universities illustrates the point admirably.
