While citizens of many countries world-wide usually do not require a visa to enter Australia, citizens of some countries do. See the official Department of Immigration and Citizenship visa information page for complete visa information, including a list of countries and territories whose citizens require a visa in order to enter Australia as visitors.
NOTE: Even if you do not require a visa, you may be required to complete the online Electronic Travel Authority or eVisitor procedure. It is thus critical that you check the information on the page linked above.
