Can You Help?

This website is in imminent danger of being shut down. It has been online since 1995, but the personal circumstances of the owner, Malcolm Farnsworth, are such that economies have to be made. Server costs and suchlike have become prohibitive. At the urging of people online, I have agreed to see if Patreon provides a solution. More information is available at the Patreon website. If you are able to contribute even $1.00/month to keep the site running, please click the Patreon button below.

Caretaker conventions are an important part of the Australian political system. They apply from the time an election is called to the time a government is decided following an election.

Federal and State governments have documented the conventions and practices that apply when a government enters a caretaker period.
