Australia is a Commonwealth of Nations country and a continent of about 21 million people, is occasionally mentioned in the script of EastEnders. A handy place to send characters so that viewers don't expect to see them again, or to dredge up "long-lost" relatives without having to explain why they have not been mentioned before. It has also produced the occasional actor or another production worker.

The show was first shown in Australia in 1987. It was first screened on the channel ABC TV until 1991 before being transferred to Satellite & Streaming services on BBC UKTV, from Mondays to Thursdays at 7:50 pm with two advertisements breaks of five minutes each. Episodes are shown roughly one week after their UK broadcast.
