He tutored in economics there before joining the RBA in 1970. From 1971–72 he worked at the Institute of Economics and Statistics at the University of Oxford. Following this, he then moved to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development in Paris, where he served until 1978, before returning to the RBA. He became head of the bank’s Research Department in 1988, Assistant Governor (Economic) in 1990, Deputy Governor in 1992 and Governor in 1996.

Macfarlane has been awarded honorary doctorates from five Australian universities: a DSc from the University of Sydney, a DLitt from Macquarie University, a DCom from the University of Melbourne, a LLD from Monash and a DSc from the University of New South Wales. He was elected a Fellow of the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia in 1998.
