The Russian Old Rite Orthodox Christian Church, Lidcombe - no other details are known.

'The Old Believers, also known as Old Ritualists, came into existence as the result of a schism within the Russian Orthodox Church in the 17th century. The Russian Church had adopted certain liturgical usages that differed from those of the Greeks. Patriarch Nikon (1605~1681) introduced changes intended to make Russian practices conform to Greek usage. This was offensive to some Russian Orthodox who believed that it was legitimate for the Russian Church to adopt its own traditions.'[Extract form:https://cnewa.org/eastern-christian-churches/toc/orthodox-church/orthodox-churches-of-irregular-status/the-old-believers/]
