Australia's Most Wanted was a television program hosted by Andrew E based on the format made popular by America's Most Wanted. It screened on the Seven Network from 1989 until 1999.[1][2][3]


An attempt was made to revive the show by the rival Nine Network after the Seven Network axed it, but this format was far from successful and was axed after only six weeks. The show was often in the headlines due to its graphic crime scene re-enactments which many deemed too distressing for the show's 7:30pm Monday timeslot. Featured presenters on the various incarnations of the show included:

During 1993, the regular NSW police representative was Senior Constable Denise Behringer.


In 2013, Channel Ten Australia re-booted the series calling it WANTED. Hosts are Sandra Sully and Matt Doran. The show was not a success and was axed two months later.
