Albanian Australians are residents of Australia who are of Albanian ancestry.

According to the 2006 Australian census 2,014 Australians were born in Albania while 11,315 claimed Albanian ancestry, either alone or with another ancestry.

Albanians began to settle in Australia from the early 1920s settling in Northern Queensland, Western Australia and Shepparton in Victoria. This ended with the commencement of World War 2.

Migration to Australia recommenced in 1950s from Albanian escapees from communism as well as from Greece, southern Italy and Kosovo. Beginning in the 1990s, migration occurred from Bosnia, Albania, Montenegro, Kosovo, and the Republic of Macedonia of refugees from wars which ravaged the Balkan region in those years.
