The Top 10 Australian TikTokers

Pamela Obeid

Ah, TikTok. 18-24 year olds love it, influencers make money off it, and business owners just want to understand it.

TikTok is insanely massive - with almost 2.5 million Austalians adopting the platform in the first half of 2020 - talk about fast growth, even by social media standards!

Australians themselves aren’t shying away from posting on the platform - with countless creators garnering millions of followers in a few short years.

Today, we’ve compiled a list of the top 10 Australian TikTokers based on subscriber count, the content they create, partnerships, and everything in between.

Hannah Balanay (18m)

Topping our list today is Hannah Balanay, a Perth-based dancer and choreographer who has a total of 18 million subscribers as of June 2022.

Her rise to TikTok fame can be largely attributed to her choreographing the now viral TikTok dance to Dua Lipa’s ‘Don’t Start Now’ - with the video proving to be a massive hit.

To make it even better for Hannah, the dance was later added as an emote to the smash hit video game Fortnite - and success was basically guaranteed.

As Hannah continues to create new dances for trending TikTok tracks, she has also partnered with Samsung, Footlocker, Depop and more - making her a force to be reckoned with in the TikTok-scape.

Sarah Magusara (17.6m)

Next, with a whopping 17.6 million followers on the platform, is Sarah Magusara. She began when the platform was in 2014, and has slowly grown a following since then, making content that jumps between lip-syncing and dancing videos.

Over time, she has expanded to fitness, modelling and behind-the-scenes vlog-style content, keeping her followers busy.

Sarah has partnered with brands like Boohoo, Fashion Nova, and Blessed Plant Protein, proving herself business savvy as well as TikTok famous.

Caleb Finn (15.5m)

Starting on the platform in 2018, Melbourne-born creator Caleb Finn has since grown his following to a crazy 15.5 million.

Twin sisters Teagan and Sam Rybka have been gymnastics fanatics since they were toddlers.

Starting their YouTube channel in 2012 with the initial purpose of showing off their skills instead propelled them to international fame, with the pair reaching the semi-finals of Australia’s Got Talent in 2013.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
