Some companies pay dividends to their shareholders every quarter (three months). If you own a company that pays a dividend, these funds will be paid into your US cash account. Once deposited, you can decide what to do with these funds - reinvest back into new investments, keep them in cash in your US account or withdraw the cash back to your Australian bank account.
