Gina Rinehart tops Australia’s Richest 250 List

The Australian has released Australia’s Richest 250 List, topped by mining magnate Gina Rinehart.

The Australian’s Media Writer Sophie Elsworth says the list includes “usual names” as well as “up and coming females” and young entrepreneurs.

“It’s amazing how some of these young Australians have really made their mark through their entrepreneurial skills,” she told Sky News host Cory Bernardi.

“There was a lot of growth in wealth in technology and the mining sectors.”

Mining magnate Gina Rinehart is still Australia’s richest person with her wealth growing to $32.64 billion as resource prices rise.

Ms Rinehart once again beat out every male billionaire to top The Australian’s The List: Australia’s Richest Top 250.
