Mevlevi Australia


Whirling Dervishes of Australia

Formed in 1986, the Mevlevi Order of Australia aims to help the individual spiritual seeker expand his or her consciousness leading to personal experience of the Divine Unity.

Framed within the mystical tradition of Sufism and inspired by the teachings and guidance of Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi, Mevlevi Australia holds regular activities in Melbourne, Australia.

The purpose of this website is to offer a brief introduction to spirituality, to Sufi mysticism and to the Mevlevi tradition.   It also provides regular updates on the activities of Mevlevi Australia.   It is, however, no substitute for personal experience.

Mevlevi Australia welcomes newcomers as well as those familiar with the Sufi way.







"In the morning or in the evening, a walk in the path of God is more meritorious than the world and everything in it." 

- A saying of the Prophet Muhammed (pbuh)
