More than 160 Target stores across Australia are set to close or be rebranded as Kmarts in another blow to the country's struggling retail sector.

Most of the impact will be felt by regional Australia, with Target Country stores making up a large number of the total closures.

Target has said it will look to "increase awareness of our online business" in regional locations, but will also "form focus groups of customers from areas without stores to continue to seek their feedback on Target’s broader online offering and how Target can support them post store closures".

Here's the full list of Target stores which are set to close or be rebranded, and when:
