Buckley edited the magazine, Prospect, from 1958 to 1964, and, during this period, was also the poetry editor of the Bulletin from 1961 until 1963. Between 1967 and 1979, he lived for periods in Ireland where he founded the Committee for Civil Rights.
He was the Lockie Fellow at the University of Melbourne from 1958 to 1960 and, in 1967, he held a personal Chair in Poetry.
His subject matter ranged from the personal to the political, with a particular interest in Irish politics, culture and history. Buckley was also heavily involved in Catholic intellectual debate during the period of the Cold War and the emergence in Australia of the DLP.
