According to a study by researchers of Victoria’s La Trobe University, more than half of all alcohol consumed in Australia is being consumed by only 10 per cent of drinkers.

The study found that those 2million heavy drinkers consumed a shocking 54.4 per cent of all the alcohol consumed in the nation.

It also found the heaviest drinkers are more likely to drink cheap alcohol like cask wine and beer and were also more likely to drink at home.

The study also found that many of these heavy drinkers are middle-aged men living in rural and regional Australia.
