Salisbury was captain of the Australian female national team, the Matildas. She is Australia's 3rd highest female international goalscorer of all time with 38 goals in representative fixtures, behind Lisa De Vanna on 47 and Kate Gill 41. Salisbury became only the second Australian female to play 100 A-internationals, which she achieved during the 2004 Summer Olympics – in the 1–1 draw against USA. In 1999, Salisbury and 12 teammates posed for a nude calendar photoshoot to raise money for the national women's football team.
On 27 January 2009, she announced she would retire after the game against Italy at Parramatta Stadium. The game finished as a 2–2 draw, with Salisbury scoring a penalty. The veteran of 151 international appearances received a standing ovation as she was substituted with six minutes remaining.
