The Richest Man In Australia....

Mon May 10, 2004 11:48 pm

Who is he? Rupert Murdoch right????

Still he is no where close to the top 10 in USA, or even the richest man in Hong Kong/Asia.

Rupert Murdoch, whilst an Australian, is no longer an Australian citizen. He is now a US citizen and had to take out US citizenship to allow him to buy out Fox. Although News Corp is still based in Adelaide.

The richest man is Kerry Packer -- owner of the Nine Network, Crown Casino, numerous magazine and newspapers - he is also the brains behind World Series Cricket (cricket fans will know what this is and how is came about).

He's also a regular in Las Vegas casinos -- not unusual for him to lose $10 million a night and is from all accounts one of the best tippers out there.

Worth around US$4.5 billion and about 110th richest.

Second richest is Frank Lowry -- worth around US$2.5 billion and is head of Westfield Holdings (shopping centres)

Only 110th? What a loser.

Heard that Bill Gates is no longer number 1. Is that true?????

Li Kar Shing is number 16 or 18 I know, the richest man in Asia (The father of Victor Li who plans to buy up Air Canada)
