Australia has participated in the Contest three times, debuting in the 2015 Contest as an automatic qualifier for the 60th anniversary celebrations. Following their positive reception, it was decided that they should be allowed to participate full time and so far they have qualified for the final twice and achieved their best result at the 2016 Contest when their representative Dami Im finished as runner-up having won the televote.

It is the first country from the Oceania region (and the second country outside Eurasia, after Morocco in 1980) to participate in the contest. In the event that they should ever win, one of the Big Five nations will host the Contest following year.
