Salvadoran Australian (Spanish: Salvadoreño Australiano) is an Australian who has Salvadoran ancestry. The entry of Salvadorans in Australia is caused by economic and political problems. The largest immigration happened when people left El Salvador as refugees who turned from Salvadoran Civil War in 1980s and helped by Australian allies in the war. The majority of Salvadorians that live in Australia are of white and mestizo ancestry. The largest percentage of Salvadorans in Australia live in Melbourne- 32% in Melbourne, 21% in Brisbane and 18% reside in Sydney.
Census data records that 25% work in managerial or professional roles. A further 23% work in production, transport and trades; 20% are labourers. Many migrants from El Salvador are skilled workers, but their lack of English has forced them to take unskilled jobs. Over 92% still speak Spanish at home, and the majority are Catholic.
