Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of best-selling singles in Australia that have been certified by the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA). From 1983, ARIA certifies a single Platinum for shipment of 70,000 copies across Australia.[1] All singles in this list must have won at least sextuple ARIA Platinum Awards (420,000 copies). Prior to 1989, the values of the certifications were different, and a dearth of published data has made it difficult to source earlier release numbers.
