Australia is home to the second largest Cypriot community outside Cyprus. Cypriot-born migrants and their families in Australia number over 80,000. The Cypriot community of Australia is an active, successful and vibrant community that stands out for its important contribution to the social and cultural richness of the country.

Cypriots came to Australia over the years, either as early migrants or as refugees as a consequence of the 1974 Turkish invasion. The earliest known Greek-Cypriot migrants first arrived in Australia in the 1850s, attracted by the gold rushes. By the 1890s, Greek-Cypriot shopkeepers had established businesses in Melbourne and Sydney. The Australian census of 1933 recorded 500 Cyprus-born people. Turkish-Cypriots holding British passports migrated to Australia after World War II. In the following years migration from Cyprus to Australia continued to rise, with populations of the Cyprus-born reaching 13,270 in 1971 and 22,030 in 1991.

Today, there are Cyprus-born residents in all Australian capital cities. The Greek-Cypriots retain a numerical dominance within the Cyprus-born community. The largest Greek-Cypriot communities are in Sydney and Melbourne. Melbourne has the most Turkish-Cypriots.
