ABC Radio Australia

With a focus on Asia and the Pacific, Radio Australia offers an Australian perspective.  Our content on radio, web, mobile and through social media encourages conversation and the sharing of ideas between Australians and the diverse people and cultures of the Asia Pacific.

As the international radio and online service of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC,) Radio Australia has a rich history as a producer of content that is educational, informative and entertaining and that serves to expand horizons, shape opinions and broaden regional views on topical issues.

Our content explains Australian culture and society and includes news and analysis, English Language Learning and information about Australia.

Our news and current affairs content is provided by the ABC’s Asia Pacific News Centre – the biggest newsroom dedicated to Asia Pacific news in Australia – and features reports from the ABC’s foreign correspondents around the world.

Radio Australia’s content is produced for audiences in Asia and the Pacific who speak English, Burmese, Chinese, Indonesian, French, Khmer, Tok Pisin and Vietnamese.
