The Reform Message was brought to Australia in 1938. D. Nicolici moved to New South Wales from his native Romania on October 20, 1938. Sabbath services began in a park, with only the Nicolici family as participants.

On February 10, 1940, the first church of the Reform Movement in Australia was begun, and in July the New South Wales Field Conference was organized. A worker’s training college and Missionary Training School were begun.

Today, the Australasian Union headquarters is located in Schofields, NSW.
