Australian Political Quiz

The Australian political parties can sometimes be misunderstood and misrepresented. Whether by other parties and their members, by stereotypes and assumptions, or by a deceptive media.

This quiz is designed to advise you on the party that you MAY agree with, but should not be taken as instructions on who to support or vote for. Only parties with current sitting members in Parliament (as of the 2007-2009 Parliament) are considered.
