The population of all of Australia's Urban-Centre Localities (UCLs) with more than 2,000 people are listed below, based on counts from the 2001 Census.

A UCL is defined as the contiguous areas making up a gazetted locality with a consistently high population density relative to the surroundings. It is not based on any legally defined boundaries, such as where the authority of a shire or town councils start and end, except that where a conurbanisation extends over a state boundary the UCL is split.

The numbers are based on persons found in the boundaries of each UCL on the night of the census, regardless of citizenship, age or place of usual residency.
