Glenn McGrath was named Cricketer of the Year on three occasions, the only multiple winner.

Each year since it was established in 1998, Wisden Australia has selected one Australian cricketer as Wisden Australia '​s Cricketers of the Year. The award recognises the selected player's contribution to cricket in Australia in the previous season, in a similar manner to the Wisden Cricketers of the Year, selected by Wisden Cricketers' Almanack based on their influence on the game in England.

Uniquely, the first award was made to a women's cricketer, Belinda Clark. Until Claire Taylor was nominated by Wisden in 2009, no other female cricket player had been a Cricketer of the Year in any format of the almanack.
