As an international student in Australia, am I considered an Australian resident for tax purposes?

The short answer is yes, but it comes with specific conditions. If you are an overseas student who has arrived in Australia to pursue your studies and are enrolled in a course that lasts more than 6 months, you are generally considered an Australian resident for tax purposes. This status affects how you are taxed and what you need to declare in your TFN declaration to your employer.
