A MAJOR terror attack in Australia is "inevitable".

That's the stark warning from counter-terrorism boss Mark Murdoch, who has revealed that the fight to keep Australia safe is one that keeps him awake at night.

"I don't like to say it but it will happen. It's inevitable," the highly respected assistant commissioner for counter-terrorism said.

"Despite everything that is being done and the good work that law enforcement and intelligence is doing, without wanting to create unnecessary fear within the community, it's going to happen."
