The 10 Richest Australians In 2020 Revealed

The AFR Rich List has once again provided some eyebrow-raising insights, revealing who the richest Australians are in 2020. The country now has a record 104 billionaires with the Top 200 entrants increasing their collective wealth by 24% this past year alone.

Heiress Gina Rinehart finds herself sitting comfortably in first place, separated by a gap of almost $6 billion between her and the nearest competition. Joined by the likes of Dr Andrew “Twiggy” Forrest and Clive Palmer in the top ten rankings, this has been quite a prosperous year for mining money.

On the younger side of the spectrum, Atlassian co-founders Mike Cannon-Brookes and Scott Farquhar have retained their middle positions of #5 and #6 – adding roughly $7 billion to their respective net worths thanks to rising share prices.
