This is an incomplete list of Australian supercentenarians, people from Australia who have attained an age of at least 110 years. The Gerontology Research Group (GRG), an organization that tracks supercentenarians and verifies age claims, has verified that 26 supercentenarians have come from Australia as of December 2014.[1] The oldest person ever from Australia was Christina Cock, who died in 2002, aged 114 years, 148 days. The oldest man ever from Australia was Jack Lockett, who also died in 2002, aged 111 years, 123 days.
