This is a list of currently active treaties that the Government of Australia has entered into since the federation of Australia in 1901. The Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, in conjunction with the Australasian Legal Information Institute, has published an online Australian Treaties Database from where this list is obtained and updated.

Treaties with Indigenous peoples of Australia[edit]

No substantial treaty has been entered into between the government of Australia and the Indigenous people of Australia. As of 2017 Australia is the only Commonwealth country that does not have such a treaty.[1][2] Some prior treaties exist in pockets, such as Batman's Treaty, but these are not substantial government treaties, i.e. treaties between the Government of the day and the traditional custodians of the land.[further explanation needed]
