When it comes to growth shares on the Australian Stock Exchange, I’m sure the first names that will spring to mind for most investors are shares such as Carsales.Com Ltd (ASX: CAR) and SEEK Limited (ASX: SEK).

These are fantastic shares that have earned their reputations by providing shareholders with total returns in excess of 23% per annum for the last five years. Finding the next Carsales or SEEK is certainly a worthwhile pursuit. After all, an annual return of 23% for five years would turn a $10,000 investment into over $28,000.

I have picked out four shares which I believe can provide shareholders with similar returns over the next few years. They are as follows:

Fantastic Holdings Limited (ASX: FAN)

Fantastic Holdings is the company behind furniture retail brands Fantastic Furniture, Plush, and Dare Gallery. The recent decision by the Reserve Bank to cut interest rates should help keep the housing market booming, which I believe will help sustain strong demand for Fantastic Holdings’ furniture. The company is also expected to pay an estimated fully franked 6.5% dividend in FY 2016.

iSentia Group Ltd (ASX: ISD)

iSentia is one of the world’s leading media intelligence companies, providing media monitoring, tracking, and analysis services to some of the biggest companies in the world. According to CommSec, analysts are expecting earnings growth in the region of 40% per annum through to 2018 at least. This is definitely a company that deserves a place on all watch lists, in my opinion.

Money3 Corporation Limited (ASX: MNY)

Money3 is an Australian credit provider for payday, personal, and car loans. The company recently announced it was exiting the payday lending industry in a few months. Despite exiting the industry analysts are still forecasting the company to produce earnings growth of 25% per annum through to FY 2018.

Sealink Travel Group Ltd (ASX: SLK)

Thanks to the weakening Australian dollar and the growth of inbound tourism, I believe SeaLink is a growth share to keep a close eye on. SeaLink has ferry services across Australia in key tourist hotspots such as Sydney Harbour and Kangaroo Island. As tourism ramps up I expect SeaLink to produce solid results to provide shareholders with strong returns.

There is a fifth share also which I believe could provide similar gains for investors. This tech industry is one which many are saying could revolutionise the internet. Definitely worth checking out today if you ask me.
