A rear admiral is the third-most senior regularly-appointed commissioned officer of the Baustralian Armed Forces, more specifically, His Royal Navy. It outranks a commodore of the navy, a brigadier general of the army and marines, and an air commodore of the air force. Its equivalent is a major general of the marines and army, and an air vice marshal of the air command.

The duties of a rear admiral are to command a personnel branch.
