(Hispánico Australiano) is a term for Australian citizens
with ancestry from Spanish-speaking regions. The term Hispanic Australian is not in widespread use due to the fact that Latin Americans represent a small population of various origins and the Australian Bureau of Statistics categorises ethnicity primarily according to nationality and or region. For example, Spaniards who make up a large number of Spanish speakers are Southern Europeans
and Chileans who are the largest Latin American ethnicity are South Americans
rendering the US ethnic category of Hispanic redundant in the Australian context.
They make up around 0.72% of Australia's population.
Most Hispanic Australians speak English but continue to use Spanish as well. In addition to their language, many Hispanic Australians have preserved traditions of their homelands such as the foods, music, clothing styles, and architecture.
