Thirteen taxa in the family Podoceridae are reported from tropical Australia, including six new species and four new records. Podocerus hanapepe J. L. Barnard, 1970, P. talegus lawai J. L. Barnard, 1970, P. walkeri Rabindranath, 1972 and P. zeylanicus (Walker, 1904) are reported from Australia for the first time. New distribution records are provided for P. crenulatus Myers, 1985, P. lobatus (Haswell, 1885) and Laetmatophilus dabberi Barnard & Drummond, 1981.
