In Australia, we have christian resources available to us for home education. Specifically SDA christian resources are mostly only available in the USA, and can be obtained online. The SDA Homeschool website provides a list of these SDA curriculum resources and online programmes.

The content I have listed below is both christian and non christian. I have attempted to include as many christian homeschooling websites and materials available specifically in Australia, to my knowledge. 

Getting started with Homeschooling in Australia:-

 

The above websites will assist you with specifically Australian information on getting started with home schooling. The Home Education Association is definitely the first place to start. Here you can find all the information you need from state requirements to support groups in your area. HEA provides members with many benefits and promotes home education with the state governments of Australia.

Homeschooling Down Under is a website put together by a christian home educator and combines resources, a publishing business, and advice. The produce a free e-newsletter.

Always Learning along with their second website The Educating Parent provides christian resources for home educators  that are very comprehensive and help to demystify homeschooling through a wealth of experience.

Design You Own Homeschool is a  christian resource that steps you through how to set your goals, to choosing your course of study, subjects, approaches and organisation.

The Aussie Educator is a very informative website breaking down all you need to know for homeschooling in each state and includes access to support group information.

Online Christian Community Support in Australia:-

On Facebook there is an SDA homeschool Moms group that Australians can join with their church family from across the world. The administrators of this group also operate a website and blog.

In Australia, christian homeschooling families can meet for support and for the buying and selling of curriculum at the Aussie Home School Forum.
