Australia is a country located on Earth; it can also refer to the continent that the country of Australia is a part of, but other names commonly used to refer to the continent are Australasia and Oceania. This real world setting has received references in Super Mario media.

Australia appears in an episode of The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3, "7 Continents for 7 Koopas". When King Koopa tries to conquer the entire Real World, he orders Cheatsy Koopa to capture Australia. Cheatsy uses his magic wand to turn all of the humans into kangaroos, except for a Crocodile Dundee-type hunter, who is transformed into a prawn. Princess Toadstool eventually steals Cheatsy's wand, and restores everyone back to normal.

Australia is the second course in the Japanese version of NES Open Tournament Golf. It follows Japan and precedes France.

During the events of the game Mario is Missing!, Luigi traveled to Sydney, the most populous city of Australia. Also, the city of Perth was seen on the game's world map, the Globulator.

A land similar to Australia, known as Down Under Land, is featured in the Super Mario Bros. Show! episode "Crocodile Mario".

One of Mario's quotes from the Nintendo Australia New Super Mario Bros. Wii sound board is "I love Australia!", mentioning this country.

The April–May 2021 Sydney Tour in Mario Kart Tour introduced a new course based on Sydney, Sydney Sprint. The course reappears in the Booster Course Pass for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, as the first course of the Propeller Cup.
