Population clock

    On 24 January 2022 at 03:40:05 PM (Canberra time), the resident population of Australia is projected to be:


This projection is based on the estimated resident population at 30 June 2021 and assumes growth since then of:
  • one birth every 1 minute and 45 seconds,
  • one death every 3 minutes and 12 seconds,
  • one person arriving to live in Australia every 4 minutes and 3 seconds,
  • one Australian resident leaving Australia to live overseas every 1 minute and 50 seconds, leading to
  • an overall total population decrease of one person every 23 minutes and 5 seconds.

These assumptions are consistent with figures released in National, state and territory population.
