Prime Minister Scott Morrison has announced that Australians will vote in a general election on 18 May.
The poll will decide whether the conservative government wins a third term or is replaced by a Labor administration led by Bill Shorten.
All 151 seats in the House of Representatives will be contested, and half of the 76 seats in the Senate.
The election is expected to be hotly contested in several areas including climate change and the economy.
