What about HMAS Australia?

22,130 Tonnes, 179.8 meters long, 24.4 meters wide, 8 12x45 guns.

OK, this new ship is bigger. But forgetting the RAN’s only battle cruiser?

I didn't forget HMAS Australia but I regard the comparison with HMAS Melbourne as more relevant. If you want to get technical, HMAS Supply was even larger than HMAS Australia and almost the same displacement as the Canberra class, but she was a fleet oiler.
