If you want to learn all about the biggest Australian cities by population, you’ve come to the right place.
Few countries have the sheer number of big cities that Australia does. After all, it is the 6th biggest country on the planet and covers 7.692 million km². That’s a lot of ground to cover! If you’re planning an epic trip Down Under, you’ll want to start with the biggest cities Australia offers. Or the 15 largest major cities in Australia, to be precise.
These Aussie destinations cover various landscapes and locations, from significant urban areas to the most populous cities. Simply put, you’ll come home with an endless number of incredible travel stories, envy-inducing snaps, and memories you’ll always cherish.
My guide even has some handy tips for your travels, from what to do in each city to what to expect in these little (or should I say big) pockets of heaven.

Population: 5.297 million
The biggest and most populated city in Australia, Sydney has long been a favorite destination for travelers from across the globe and welcomes over 10 million visitors per year. The “Harbor City” is world-famous for its iconic Opera House and Harbor Bridge, which makes its skyline so identifiable.
There’s so much to Sydney and so much to see and do from the city, right down to the sea. I lived in Sydney for a year, and I always refer to it as my second home. As a matter of fact, I think about moving back quite often!

Predicted to soon surpass Sydney’s already massive population, buzzing Melbourne is arguably Australia’s cultural home and the nation’s sporting capital. Whatever your traveling style, Melbourne has it in spades.
It has a famed foodie scene, world-class coffee, and a significant urban area that’s both quirky and majorly hip. And this isn’t even including its pockets of calm amongst the chaos, fashion to die for, and a non-stop pace that isn’t for the faint of heart.
It’s not just one of Australia’s biggest cities, but it’s also one of the coolest destinations in the world!
Melbournians have style and substance to back it up. Whether your traveling style is slow-paced or constantly moving, you’ll find what you’re looking for in Melbourne. And to make it even better, you’ll always be in good company.
The city is crawling year-round with over 10 million annual visitors — and it looks like Melbourne is set to surpass Sydney on the tourism front too. This is just another installment in their long-standing rivalry.

Brisbane (or “Brisvegas” to cheeky locals) may only have half the population of Australia’s biggest city, Sydney, but believe me — Brisbane is coming up in the ranks on all fronts. More and more interstate Australians and travelers from abroad are flocking to “Brissie” for its laidback way of life, charming locals, mild year-round climate, and lower cost of living than its other Eastern capital counterparts.
Brisbane is lucky to have that elusive balance of being a fun city with a variety of island retreats on its doorstep. It may not be positioned on the beach like other cities, but you can count on Brisbanians to rectify that.
It has its own man-made beach in the very heart of the CBD. How cool is that? And for when that won’t cut it, they have beautiful Stradbroke Island (“Straddie” to locals) just 25km away.
To show off its popularity amongst everyone even more, Brisbane has had the largest growth in population of any Australian city between 2021 and 2022.
What You Have To Do in Brisbane
- Visit Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary
- Explore the Central South Bank
- Day trip to Stradbroke Island
- Escape the heat at Streets Beach

Still often referred to as having the vibe of “a big country town,” the West Coast city of Perth has never been as popular as it is now. International visitors arrive here, fall in love with the city, and stay for good.
It’s way less busy and frantic than the bigger cities of the East Coast, and its local government areas (parks, etc.) are, put simply, one of the best in the country. Perth is perfect for those who appreciate a city setting with a stunning natural landscape.
Lazy rivers wind through the city. White sand beaches have turquoise Indian Ocean waters. And tropical island destinations are a ferry ride away, not to mention the charming wine regions on its doorstep.
There are few cities that can rival the beauty of Perth and its surroundings. That statement can’t be wrong, with over a million people visiting each year.
Key Perth Sights and Experiences
- Surf, swim, or sunbake on Cottesloe Beach
- Surf the sand at Lancelin Sand Dunes
- Eat and drink at Elizabeth Quay
- See the sights at Kings Park
- Wind your way along the Swan River
- Explore the portside city of Fremantle

State: South Australia
Population: 1.418 million
The capital of South Regional Australia, Adelaide earns the nickname “The City of Churches,” but it offers much more than religious landmarks.
Adelaide is a small enough city to tackle on foot, but this little pocket of Straya has a whole array of landscapes. Huge, stunning beaches that rival more famous coastal hotspots like Bondi — but without the same visitor numbers — and an ever-growing hip cafe, restaurant, and bar scene.
And for when you feel like escaping the rat race for a while, Adelaide has some of the country’s premier wine regions nestled in majestic rolling hills, along with some awesome island destinations just a stone’s throw away. It’s also a great jumping-off point for your big Outback trip, and heading north from the city will take you along the tourist trail right into the Red Center and beyond.
Adelaide’s Most Popular Visitor Attractions
- Take a dip at the stunning beaches of Glenelg and Henley
- A day at Adelaide Zoo
- Hike or walk at Cleland Conservation Park

6) Gold Coast
A fantastic holiday location for solo travelers, couples, or families, Queensland’s Gold Coast has been a beloved destination for decades. And what’s not to love? Tucked away in South-East Queensland, not too far from the state border, the Gold Coast has long been given the apt slogan of “beautiful one day, perfect the next.” And that it is.
Warm weather year-round means you can plan a trip here without a moment’s notice. There’s an endless number of amazing island-inspired resorts and homes to stay at and incredible beaches that go on forever and ever.
Kids and big kids alike love the region’s famed amusement parks, while the central hub of Surfers Paradise has some of the best cafes, restaurants, bars, and clubs this side of the border. Head down to beautiful Broadbeach, Burleigh Heads, or Mermaid Waters, and you could have the beach all to yourself.
The options are truly endless. And with the state capital of Brisbane less than an hour away — as well as the lush landscape of the Sunshine Coast — the Gold Coast is your gateway to Queensland.
Be sure to check out my guide on the things to do in Surfers Paradise for more inspiration!

Gold Coast: Movie World, Sea World, and Wet’n’Wild 3-Day Pass
Price: From $179 AUD (3-day pass)

State: New South Wales
Newcastle is experiencing peak popularity for visiting tourists and those yearning to relocate to a picturesque location without the non-stop, crowded streets of Australia’s largest cities. With just half a million residents enjoying its incredible coastal landscape, Newcastle is a place to truly get back to nature and live life a little slower — but with all the same drawcards a bigger city can offer.
An endless variety of beaches attracts swimmers, surfers, divers, and sun lovers to Newcastle’s shores. Active types can’t get enough of its many walking and hiking trails with unrivaled views.
The leading wineries of the Hunter Valley are a short drive away, and reaching Newcastle from some of the East Coast’s biggest cities is a breeze. Sydney is just two hours away, hippy haven Byron Bay is six hours north, and the natural wonders of Port Stephens are just a 30-minute drive.
If your travels across Australia are taking you up the East Coast, don’t miss Newcastle!

8) Canberra (Australian Capital Territory)
State: Australia Capital Territory (ACT)
You wouldn’t think that the city of Canberra — which exists primarily as the center of the Australian parliament — would have much to offer beyond catering to political buffs or government workers, but it really does!
Neighborhoods of Canberra are coming up as some of Australia’s coolest, with trendy cafes, restaurants, and bars peppering their streets. Canberra was awarded the title of Australia’s capital due to a famous battle of the capital cities between Melbourne and Sydney for bragging rights. Canberra won due to its location between the two cities.
The inland city gets super cold in winter, but come summer, the breeze off the famous Lake Burley Griffin makes it an enjoyable destination. Visitors flock to Canberra to tour Parliament House and hit up the other national landmarks, galleries, and museums.
And with Sydney just three hours away and Melbourne just less than seven hours, you’ll be in a perfect position to explore this awesome part of Australia.

9) Sunshine Coast
Queensland’s Sunshine Coast couldn’t be more different from its state neighbor, the Gold Coast. While the GC draws those in looking for a more fast-paced and fun beachside vacation, the Sunshine Coast is all about relaxing, unwinding, and resetting in an incredible landscape.
It’s perfect for those who crave a retreat-style destination that stays hot and sunny all year, as the entire 1600 sq/m of this amazing region ticks all of the boxes. It’s a lush hinterland to explore, complete with natural waterfalls and freshwater swimming spots.
It goes without saying it has tons of white sand beaches and warm turquoise waters, let alone some buzzing towns like central hotspot Noosa with its terrific nightlife and laidback lifestyle. You’ll also instantly fall in love with the Sunshine Coasts’ delicious fresh produce sourced at your doorstep.
Once you touch down on The Sunshine Coast, you will know just why this Australian destination is so well-loved.

Often skipped over on the journey between the huge cities of Melbourne and Sydney, Wollongong simply doesn’t get the recognition it deserves. Just two hours from the bustling streets of Sydney, Wollongong is fast becoming a popular place for commuters to base themselves on their daily journey into The Big Smoke.
And why wouldn’t they? Not only is the cost of living far less than its state capital, but it has all the things you’re accustomed to in the big city — and maybe even more. A mainstay in the region of the “Illawarra,” Wollongong makes the top 10 most populated cities in Australia but still has the comforts of small city living.
It has everything you need, from amazing beaches and lookouts to walking trails, national parks, and a fantastic coastal lifestyle. Research has found that Australia’s indigenous people have called Wollongong home for over 40,000 years — with its name deriving from an Aboriginal term for “five islands.” It’s easy to visit this part of the world and find yourself tempted to stay for good.
Don’t Miss These Wollongong, New South Wales Activities

Once simply known as a cheap location to commute into nearby Melbourne or the jumping-off point to head down the world-renowned Great Ocean Road. Geelong has finally received the attention it deserves as a city of its very own, with just as much to offer as anywhere else.
Located an hour from the Victorian state capital of Melbourne on Australia’s South-Eastern tip, Geelong has overhauled its industrial image of the past and now attracts plenty of visitors. If you’re drawn to beautiful waterfront attractions, a family-friendly atmosphere, untouched parks and reserves, and whales and dolphins living just off its shores, then this is the place for you.
Whether traveling to or from Melbourne, be sure to allocate ample time to explore the city of Geelong. After all, with Melbourne hitting a population of five million and Geelong barely a quarter million, you won’t be battling with the crowds. That’s for sure.

Tasmania is often referred to as the most beautiful state in the huge island country of Australia, but it does get a lot of cheeky stick from interstate Aussies. However, that doesn’t stop the visitors from pouring into the detached South-Eastern island year-round, drawn to its quiet cities, incredible local food and drink, mountain peaks, charming locals, and amazing natural wonders.
Hobart may pale in comparison to the biggest city in Australia, Sydney (1/20th of its population), which is just under a two-hour flight away, but the state’s international tourism is now at an all-time high. In 2018 alone, over 300,000 international visitors touched down in Hobart to explore this majestic pocket of the world, which is a big number for such a small city.
Explore Hobart before heading to rival bayside Tasmanian city Launceston, an enjoyable two-hour drive away. Drink epic local beer, see some of the country’s best art, and breathe in that fresh Tassie air.
Experience the Best of the Tasmanian Capital:

If your travel philosophy is “the hotter and sun, the better,” then you’ll absolutely love Townsville. After all, it sees an average of 320 days of sunshine per year. So pack your sunscreen.
The coastal city located on the North-East coast of sunny Queensland is the largest urban center north of the (much further south) Sunshine Coast. It’s really coming into its own and putting a ton of effort into growing its tourism brand.
And the perks of visiting Townsville are vast. A buzzing habitat for lots of fascinating Aussie wildlife (both land and marine creatures), Townsville has a great range of aquariums and animal sanctuaries to pay a visit to. It also has the perfect mix of historical and modern architecture, tropical gardens and plants, and a growing range of hip eateries.
Let me not forget the oasis of Magnetic Island, just a 20-minute ferry ride away. Traveling down the coast of incredible Queensland is an experience you need to have in your lifetime, and a stop off to wander through the streets of charming Townsville should 100% be on your itinerary.

“Discover a world below the surface and visit the Great Barrier Reef. Be inspired by the wonder of the Museum of Underwater Art and explore the colorful Central Section of the Great Barrier Reef.”
If seeing the enormous Great Barrier Reef is on your bucket list, then you’ll be casting off right from the city of Cairns. The gateway to Far North Queensland (FNQ), hot, humid, and steamy, Cairns is a coastal paradise that knows how to party just as much as it knows how to unwind completely.
For a city with a permanent population of not even a quarter of a million, it somehow manages to cater to its annual domestic and international tourism numbers of over three million with complete ease. On top of being the launching point to see the Great Barrier Reef, Cairns also has the world-renowned Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation that sells the region for itself.
Add to that fantastic bars, untouched islands just offshore, mouth-watering fresh produce, beautiful tropical resorts (with great pools, obviously), an acclaimed adventure sports scene, and super friendly locals – and you can totally see why it’s a must-visit.
