This paper mainly reviews Liu Ts’un-yan’s academic research, especially on Chinese Taoist studies, and combines the macro historical background of Australian sinology studies in the 20th century with his academic achievements. By analysing Liu’s views and thoughts on Taoist history, culture and spirit, the paper explores the features of early Taoist studies in Australia. It finds that Liu started and led the research on Taoist studies in Australia, trained and influenced several well-known foreign scholars on Chinese studies, and became an important Chinese Australian scholar in the field and history of sinology research in the world in the 20th century.
