Australian Parliamentary Leaders: April 10, 2024

This page shows the heads of government and opposition leaders in Australia from April 10, 2024.

There are nine parliaments in Australia. There is one Federal Parliament in Canberra, six State Parliaments (New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia & Tasmania) and two Territory Parliaments (Northern Territory & Australian Capital Territory).

Each parliament has a lower house from which a government is formed. The Federal Government is led by the Prime Minister, State Governments have Premiers, and Territory Governments have Chief Ministers. There is an Opposition Leader in each Parliament.

Latest Changes

April 10, 2024: Dean Winter was elected unopposed as leader of the Tasmanian ALP, becoming Leader of the Opposition. He replaced Rebecca White, who resigned on March 26, 2024, following the ALP’s defeat in the state election.

Winter, 39, is now the youngest parliamentary leader in the nation, supplanting the Northern Territory’s Lia Finocchiaro, 39.
