The 2042 Australian Federal Election was a parliamentary election that took place on Saturday, 8 November 2042. Set to determine the members of the 58th Australian Parliament, it was won by the far right Australian Nationalist Party, led by Andrew Burges.

The election itself was a double dissolution, the first since 2018 and saw a decline in support for the Nationalists. Burges, who called for a double dissolution following the senates refusal to pass his party's immigration bill that would limit immigration to simply Europe and the Americas, sought to gain a significant amount of seats within both the House and Senate to pass it without independent support.

Whilst they party did achieve a majority in the Senate in the elections aftermath, they lost several seats in the House, allowing both the Liberal National and Labor parties to make significant gains. 

Burges himself was extremely disappointed in the elections outcome, believing he had managed to secure the support of the Australian people. It was the first election in which saw the first extensive use of what many outside Australia would come to call "cult of personality", idolising Burges as the only one to save the nation from both economic troubles, as well as the maligned immigrants.
