In Australia, there are three levels of government—local, state or territory, and federal and you have representatives at each level. At the state or territory, and federal levels one person is elected to represent the interests of you and your local community (electorate). This is your local Member of Parliament (MP).

Use the information below to find out who your state and federal MPs are and how to contact them. You may also want to check out the Federal, state, local—who's in charge of what? tool, so you know who is the best person to contact on a particular issue.
