This FACT indicates the number of people in Australian capitals who speak Arabic at home. 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.

Given the increase in migration from these regions to Australia over the past decade, the number of people who speak Arabic at home has increased. However, this number is still significantly lower than other major languages spoken in Australia, which are namely Chinese languages, Indo-Aryan languages, Vietnamese, Italian, and Greek, to name a few. 

According to the results of the 2016 ABS Census, the city with the highest number of people who speak Arabic at home is Sydney, at 192,248 persons. The city with the lowest number is Darwin at 271 persons.
