The BRW has revealed the top 30 self-made richest women in the country.

Topping the list with an estimated wealth of $390 million is TPG Telecom’s Vicky Teoh.

She maintains an 18 per cent stake in the internet company, which has crept up from $125 million to $380 million thanks to its solid performance.

Other tech-related women that feature in the list stem from the retail sector. This includes Patricia Ilhan, who took third spot with an estimated wealth of $320 million.

She played a hand with helping her husband John setup the mobile phone franchise, Crazy John’s and after his death in 2007, she sold her stake in the business to Vodafone for $150 million.

Gerry Harvey’s ex-wife Lynette Harvey held on to tenth spot with her wealth worth about $155 million. The fortune comes from shares she's held in the retailer, Harvey Norman since 1982.

Harvey’s second wife, Kay Page, comes in at 22 holding on to about $60 million. Page is the managing director of the Harvey Norman chain and she was also the first woman to grace the National Rugby League board back in 2005.

Vita Group’s co-founder and CEO, Maxine Horne rounds out the list, coming in at 27 with wealth worth about $30 million. Her fortune comes from shares in the retail group, which owns Telstra and Fone Zone retail outlets.

According to BRW, the list is based on female Australian citizens involved in creating their own wealth and excludes those that inherited their money from former generations.
