Business News Australia's annual lists feature the country's most successful listed businesses and their leaders.

The waning impact of the pandemic and a subsequent rush of businesses investing for growth has breathed a new energy into Melbourne’ s top companies in 2022, driven almost exclusively by the massive demand for commodities.
Many of Australia's leading young entrepreneurs featured on this list faced challenges this year, but remarkably they pulled through by either overhauling their business models to capitalise on newfound opportunities, or simply did what they do best with a couple of tweaks.


Brisbane’s top companies have been a hotbed of growth in 2021 - a year that saw the combined market cap of the city’s largest ASX-listed entities rise by almost 50 per cent to just shy of $120 billion.

It was a year of mergers, acquisitions, de-mergers and spin-offs for Sydney’s leading listed companies in 2021, as the shocks that sidelined investors in 2020 spurred new opportunities in a still emerging ‘new normal’ world defined by vaccination, inflation and a scramble for assets.

After a rollercoaster 2020 of travel restrictions, seismic structural shifts and health threats that have changed the way we live and work, Melbourne's businesses have beaten the odds.
