This FACT indicates the number of people in Australian capitals who speak a Chinese language at home. While Mandarin and Cantonese are the most commonly known Chinese languages, there are many other regional dialects.

The number of people who speak Chinese languages at home offers insight into the number of first and second generation Chinese Australians living in a city, as well as the ethnic distribution within a city (that is, the assimilationof different cultures in multicultural neighbourhoods, as opposed to mono-cultural neighbourhoods).

Unsurprisingly, the city with the highest number of people who speak a Chinese language at home is Sydney, the city with the largest Chinese population, at 382,869. The city with the lowest is Darwin at 3,101, followed closely by Hobart at 3,674. This data was collected in the 2016 ABS Census.
