Australian is an historic unincorporated community on the Fraser River in the Cariboo Country of the Central Interior of British Columbia, Canada. Its name is derived from that of the Australian Ranch, one of British Columbia's first ranching operations and also an important and popular roadhouse on the Cariboo Road during the Cariboo Gold Rush and afterwards. The Canadian National Railway point at this location is named Australian Wye.
