Admiral of the Fleet is the five-star naval rank of the Baustralian Armed Forces, and the equivalent NATO paygrade is OF-10. It is equivalent to a field marshal of the Baustralian Army and a marshal of His Royal Air Force.

It is worn by the Sovereign in his capacity of Commander-in-Chief and Lord High Admiral, certain multinational commands, retired admirals holding certain high positions such as First Sea Lord or Chief of the Defence Staff. Honourary appointments to this rank are most common.

Admirals of the fleet wear a sleeve lace of one thick band, and four standard bands of gold, with an executive curl on top. The shoulder board consists of a wide gold band, two crossed silver batons, surmounted with the royal cypher, with a gold naval button on top.
