The 2030 Australian Federal Election was held on 18 May 2030 in which all 152 seats on the Australian House of Representatives and 40 of 76 seats in the Senate were up for election. Determining the members of the 2030-2033 Australian Parliament, it was won by the incumbent Labor Party led by Tony Burke against the Liberal National Party, led by a newly elected leader, long term representative Steven Ciobo.

Chosen as a compromise candidate in 2028, Steven Ciobo, a veteran of almost thirty years in the House, ran a vigorous campaign against the nine year incumbent Tony Burke, who despite being relatively fatigued from all of the party's years in power, managed to reign in voters with his own energetic campaigning, as well as bolstering a strong economy despite the economic depression of the yearly 2020's.

The major issue of the 2030 campaign season was the republican debate, and the Australian Republic referendum that occurred on election day. Both running against a turn to a republican presidential system, they were out competed by the far more numerous 'YES' voters in the House, the majority of which came of the right wing "Third Block" coalition. The continued loss of seats during the election is often attributed to both Burke's and Ciobo's support of the monarchy, of which the Australian people turned against during the election-referendum. On 26 January (Australia Day) 2031, Governor-General Melvin Hupfeld officially dissolved ties to the royal family of Britain, becoming the nations first president and declaring Australia the Federal Republic of Australia
