Legislation, maiden speeches and political battle: MPs are back in Parliament for the final sitting day of the week.
Yesterday was all about the pomp and ceremony but today things get real.
Welcome to the first day of the new Parliament. It's nearly 17 weeks since Parliament sat. So much has changed.
It's Labor leader Bill Shorten's last major speech of the campaign. Let's hear what he has to say.
Good evening and welcome to the leaders' debate. Who will come out the winner? Malcom Turnbull or Bill Shorten? Let's find out.
The first face to face encounter of the campaign between Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Labor leader Bill Shorten.
Hello and welcome to day 1 proper of the campaign or day -54 if that makes you feel better.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is about to make his pitch to voters to re elect his government ahead of the July 2 election.
Only 74 days to go people. We are in the warm up campaign following the Senate's rejection of the government's building watchdog legislation which handed Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull a trigger for a double dissolution election.
Australia faces a double dissolution election on July 2 after the Senate rejected Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull's building industry watchdog legislation.
The pre election campaign has begun. Regardless of the Senate's actions both leaders have hit the airwaves to sell their message. And what does former prime minister Tony Abbott think?
It's the last day of the sitting week although the Senate is expected to sit late into the night to pass the government's upper house voting changes. And lower house MPs will have to stick around to approve the changes. So it's not quite the last day. Between now then things could get a bit testy.
Hello and welcome to the day in politics. As well as more talk about the budget - what's in, what's out, when it will be - the report into the Safe Schools is the topic of conversation. It's basically a stick of dynamite that will get thrown onto an already fiery week.
Hello and welcome to the start of another sitting week. Will it be the last week before the government goes all crazy na na and decides to have an early double dissolution election? Will the budget be moved? Will we even find out the answers to these questions?
The Prime Minister calls in the police to investigate a leak that may or may not have something to do with his predecessor - it's just like old times. Suspicion and tax are the themes of the day.
Tax, tax, tax, that's all anyone wants to talk about. Is Labor trying to destroy the housing market or is the Coalition merely governing for the rich? Let's see who is winning the war of hyperbole.
Tax, election, tax, election - a familiar refrain greets us as we begin the day in politics.
Never miss a meal is the advice from one of the most successful prime ministers. Words for Malcolm Turnbull as he heads into another sitting week.
Hello and welcome to the final day of the week. The debate about tax reform - or the lack thereof - continues and the government will release its defence white paper later this morning.
Hello and welcome to Wednesday - hump day - and the government and opposition are locked in a battle over house prices and whether making housing more affordable is a good or a bad thing.
Hello and welcome to another day in federal politics where the talk is all about whether or not Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull will pull the trigger on an early double dissolution election. And a bit of tax.
After a messy start to the political year a new opinion poll shows that, perhaps not surprisingly, the public has marked the government down. Let's see how it responds.
Hello and welcome to the day in politics. Two senior ministers are leaving Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull's ranks and another is under a cloud. There's never a more exciting time for a reshuffle.
Hello there and welcome to the day in politics. At 10 am Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull will deliver the tenth annual address to Parliament on indigenous disadvantage.
The week's themes are coalescing around tax and asylum seekers but a new front is opening up around whether or not the government wants to outsource a large swathe of Medicare.
Hello and welcome to Monday. After a picnic on the lawns of The Lodge yesterday MPs are back talking about what they were talking about when we left them on Thursday - the GST and asylum seekers.
Hello there and welcome to another day in politics. The repercussions of yesterday's High Court decision continue and the pressure on the Prime Minister in relation to the GST grows. What a time to be alive.
Hello and welcome to Wednesday. The High Court has thrown out a challenge to the government's policy of offshore detention. Let's listen in on the reaction to the decision.
Hello and welcome back to the first day of Parliament for 2016. The summer beards have been shaved off and everyone's shoes are shiny.
