Based on the analysis into the 2016 Australian census data, this chapter presents some noteworthy features of the religious life of the Chinese community in contemporary Australia. In particular, it reveals that the seemingly high level of secularity within this community does not necessarily mean that most Chinese in contemporary Australian explicitly reject religion. In comparison with the general Australia population, although the Chinese community is twice higher in the proportion of members who claim themselves believe ‘no religion’, it has significant lower proportion of members who explicitly proclaim to be atheists.
