University Ranking

In my opinion, Ranking is a very relative method to know about the university in terms of infrastructure, lab facilities, people, teaching quality etc. there is no definitive guide to university ranks, because each uni is considered to be good in some thing particular (i.e. specialization)

For example, Macquarie and RMIT are considered good for their business schools. University of Sydney for Law and veterinary science, UNSW for engineering, university of queensland for life science research etc.

Most Australian unis are in the top 200 or so in the world.

There is also a Tie-up between 8 of the prominent aussie universities and they call themselves the 'group of eight'
