For Australia’s wealthy, the price tag for a home that meets their needs and tastes now goes all the way to $100 million.

And if you have the cash to splash, you can fork out on breathtaking views of the Great Barrier Reef, a slice of Tasmania’s own take on Brideshead castle, or an opulent mansion in the heart of a suburb best known for housing our prime ministers.

Here is a look inside the properties asking top dollar in each state and territory.
