The Australian Federal Election 2033 was a parliamentary election for the members of the Australian Parliament for the years 2033-2036. Held on 9 July 2033, it saw the return of the Labor led government, headed by twelve year incumbent, Tony Burke against the opposition Liberal National party, led by Verity Barton, the first women to be in head of the opposition, and the Jim Saleam-led Third Block coalition.

The election was the first held under the new republican government, and was held in relatively stable times following the republican referendum. Under a strong and growing economy, as well as good international standings, both Labor saw growth in their number of seats for the first time in the 2021 election. The Liberal National Party on the other hand saw growth in their number of seats in the House since the 2013 election.

The election saw a massive increase in the popular vote for the right wing coalition of independents, the Third Block (named after the far-right wing economic stance dubbed the "third position"). Led by Jim Saleam (who at age 78 was the oldest politician to openly run for prime minister), they campaigned on a far-right position against the major parties, mainly against the open immigration standards set by Prime Minister Burke, a debate that was becoming more heated around this time in Australia.
