This is a list of the busiest international air routes in Australia from Australian airports that have scheduled international traffic, namely Adelaide, Brisbane, Cairns, Darwin, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.

International routes are flown strictly between one Australian airport to a non-Australian airport. These may include stops in other cities (i.e. Sydney–London via Singapore).

The following figures are calculated by the Australian government Department for Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government.
