The brightest star in the constellation is [8230] alpha Trianguli Australis, also known as Atria, which is just a contraction of its designation. It is an orange bright giant 415 light-years distant and a suspected binary star.

The three main stars of Triangulum Australe are brighter than those of their northern counterpart, although the constellation is smaller. Navigators have named its brightest star Atria, a contraction of its scientific name Alpha Trianguli Australis.
