Australia has a small but world-class solar physics research community, with strong international ties, working in areas of particular strength defined by the research interests of individuals and small groups. Most research occurs at the major universities, and a small number of Ph.D. students are trained in the field each year. This paper surveys Australia’s current contribution to solar physics research, and the prospects for future development of the field.
