The results of our latest national Census reveal who we are, where we live, what we do, how we work and how we lead our lives.

In 2016 Census Hindi came out as top Indian language spoken at home in Australia with 159,662 speakers across Australia.

While English remained the main language spoken, Census data showed that more than one-fifth (21%) of Australians spoke a language other than English at home.

There was a significant increase recorded in the proportion of the population speaking Hindi (from 0.5% to 0.7%).

Here are the state-wise figures of Hindi-speakers:

  • NSW - 67,034
  • VICTORIA - 51,241
  • QUEENSLAND - 18,163
  • SOUTH AUSTRALIA - 7,310
  • WESTERN AUSTRALIA - 10,747
  • TASMANIA - 639
  • AUSTRALIAN CAPITAL TERRITORY (ACT) - 3,646
  • NORTHERN TERRITORY - 852

From Parramatta in NSW to Point Cook in Victoria; from Canning Wale in Western Australia to Murrumba Downs in Queensland, here are the top Hindi speaking suburbs of Australia.
