Moore-Gilbert, a specialist in Middle East politics at the University of Melbourne, said after leaving Iran that she was grateful for the work done to gain her release.
"Thank you also to all of you who have supported me and campaigned for my freedom," she said, in a statement released through Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
She, and the Australian government has denied any wrongdoing on her behalf.
Once Moore-Gilbert arrives in Australia, she will be quarantined in an unspecified location for two weeks.
