Early Japanese settlers started the pearling industry in Australia. Larger-scale migration began after the Second World War, and Japanese continue to settle in Australia today. According to the 2016 census, more than 65,000 residents identified with Japanese ancestry.

There are 108 sister city relationships between Australia and Japan. These sister city relationships provide opportunities for educational, cultural, sporting, and economic exchanges.
