Zionist education, fundraising for Israel, successful Zionist youth movements and the promotion of Aliyah. All of the Zionist organizations are affiliated with State Zionist Councils en each of the main centers, who en turn, are affiliated with the umbrella Zionist Federation of Australia (ZFA). The ZFA acts as the Zionist community's voice with Israel and other Diaspora communities.

The six Zionist Youth Movements, which represent all the different major religious and political positions on the Zionist spectrum, are united by the Australian Zionist Youth Council (AZYC).

An extraordinary 79% of the adult Jewish population en Australia are believed to have visited Israel which is quite extraordinary for a country so far away geographically. And approximately 9,000 Jews are believed to have made Aliyah from Australia.
