Accounting jobs in Australia are mostly found in Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is Australia's largest financial centre. Sixty-five percent of the Australian finance industry is located there, including the Reserve Bank, the Australian Stock Exchange and the Sydney Futures Exchange.

Around 600 financial institutions have offices in Melbourne's Central Business District and it is also home to the headquarters of two of the largest banks in Australia; Australia Bank and ANZ.
