This FACT indicates the number of Australians who speak Arabic at home per 100,000 persons, in each capital. Arabic is the fifth-most commonly spoken language in the world, and is spoken most widely in Northern Africa, the Middle East, and East Africa.

However, this number is still significantly lower than other major languages spoken in Australia, namely Chinese languages, Indo-Aryan languages, Vietnamese, Italian, and Greek, to name a few.
Results form the 2016 Census show that the city with the highest number of people who speak Arabic at home is Sydney, at 3,985 per 100,000 persons. The city with the lowest number is Darwin, at 198 per 100,000 persons.
