Well..according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS):

The average Australian weekly income is: $1164.60

The average Australian annual income is: $60,892.

 This constitutes a wage growth of just 1.6 per cent over 12 months to the end of last year, which is the slowest annual pace on record.

However,  full-time employees were slightly better off, earning $1,592.40 per week, or $82,804.80 across the year, an increase of 2.2 per cent over the year.
