The article reports on earlier spiritual revivals in the copper mining town of Moonta in South Australia in 1875 and Loddon River, Victoria in 1883. It provides background information on the Moonta Mines. The Loddon River revival had witnessed exceptional growth in rural Victorian Methodism during the 1880s. Spiritual revivals are easily criticized. It is argued that they are chiefly a means for strengthening Christians, not for converting the unchurched.
