About Us


'A way of questioning, a place of discovery, a distinctly Australian forum for conversation and new ideas. There are many paths, but there is only one Eureka Street.'

Eureka Street is a publication of the Australian Jesuits. It existed as a monthly, and briefly bi-monthly, print magazine for 16 years, commencing in March 1991. Today it exists as a vibrant online journal of analysis, commentary and reflection on current issues in the worlds of politics, religion and culture. It aims to participate in public discussion and influence public opinion regarding the things that matter in Australia and the world.


Mission and spirit of Eureka Street

As a publication of the Australian Jesuits, Eureka Street is informed by the values of Jesuit spirituality and in particular the principles of Catholic Social Teaching. It sits comfortably in the tradition of Catholic publishing for a public audience epitomised by Dorothy Day and The Catholic Worker. Its audience includes readers of all religions or none, who share or may be enhanced by the values and respect for the flourishing of human dignity that underpin all Eureka Street articles.



For much of its life as a print magazine, Eureka Street was edited by the renowned Melbourne writer and critic Morag Fraser. Michael Mullins, who had a long career in broadcasting and online media, oversaw the magazine's transition from print to online in 2006 and served as editor until 2015. Tim Kroenert was editor until 2019. David Halliday is the editor of Eureka Street, and Andrew Hamilton continues to serve as editorial consultant.

Protecting children and vulnerable adults

Eureka Street is a ministry of the Australian Jesuit Province. The Province has policies in place regarding how both religious and lay people engage in their ministry. The principles, protocols and standards of practice governing the work of Jesuits and lay partners are outlined in the Province's Policy for Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults.

Principles and procedures relating to how Australian Church ministries engage in ministry are also outlined in the Towards Healingdocument, as well as the documents Integrity in Service of the Church and Integrity in Ministry. Issues involving Church-related abuse are dealt with via the National Committee for Professional Standards.

The Truth, Justice and Healing Council is coordinating the Catholic Church’s response to the Royal Commission with a commitment to cooperation, openness, full disclosure and justice for victims and survivors.
