The architecture profession in Australia is a medium-sized and growing industry, according to the Australian Government’s Job Outlook.
Currently employing approximately 24,500 people, the profession has been increasing in size over the past decade and is likely to continue expanding until at least 2020, when it will employ approximately 29,000 people, according to Job Outlook.

An architect can expect to earn between $47,000 and $88,000 per year, with an annual average salary of approximately $61,000, according to PayScale.
PayScale notes a strong positive relationship between earning capacity and work experience, with experienced architects earning significantly higher wages than entry-level professionals. An entry-level architect can expect to earn an annual average salary of approximately $55,000, while an architect with 20 years or more of professional experience can earn on average approximately $100,000 per year.
PayScale notes that architects commonly start their careers as design architects, and later progress to working as project architects. For that reason, skills in project management and planning may enhance an architect’s earning capacity.
