Biography

Scott Morrison was sworn in as Prime Minister of Australia on 24 August 2018.

Prior to becoming Prime Minister, Scott Morrison was Federal Treasurer. His achievements as Treasurer include:

  • Record jobs growth
  • Delivering tax relief for families and small businesses
  • Reducing the deficit
  • Getting debt under control
  • Ensuring multinationals pay their fair share of tax

The Prime Minister says the achievement he is most proud of is the more than 100,000 jobs that were created for young people during 2017-18. This is the best result on record.


As Minister for Immigration and Border Protection, Scott Morrison successfully stopped the boats. This stopped the deaths at sea that had been occurring over the previous six years under Labor. Stopping the boats meant that, the Government could close 19 detention centres and remove all children from detention and from Nauru.

As Social Services Minister, Scott reduced abuse of the welfare system and put Australia’s social safety net on a more sustainable footing.

Throughout his career in government and in the private sector, Scott Morrison has established a reputation as someone who listens to people and solves difficult policy problems.

Scott Morrison is from the Sutherland Shire in Sydney's south. He has represented his local community in Parliament for over 11 years.

He has been married to Jenny for 29 years and they have two young daughters.

Scott is a 'netball dad', a member of his local church, number one ticket holder of his beloved NRL Cronulla Sutherland Sharks and a big Tina Arena fan.

From Scott

Since becoming Prime Minister I have travelled to drought-affected communities, talking to farmers and engaging with communities. Our farmers and graziers are the best in the world. They are doing it tough, and we are on their side. That's why we passed the Future Drought Fund through the House last night, which will provide $5 billion in permanent funding support for drought resilience projects all around Australia.

Amazing to meet Scarlett and Anna with Katie Allen MP this morning to announce our Government will expand the PBS listing of the medicine Kalydeco for infants, helping children living with Cystic Fibrosis. It will save families up to $300,000 a year, taking it down to as little as $6.50 a script. Improving the lives of children like Scarlett and Anna are the inspiring reason we do our jobs as parliamentarians.

Our farmers are the best in the world despite years of drought and hardship. That’s why today at the Daily Telegraph’s Bush Summit in Dubbo, I announced that our Government is committed to take our agricultural sector to a $100 billion industry by 2030.

The Morrison Government is focused on delivering on our plan to create 1.25 million more jobs over the next five years.
