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

How good is Queensland! Exciting news for Australia and Queensland - we’re now a step closer to hosting another Olympic and Paralympic Games. Overnight the International Olympic Committee announced it will enter exclusive negotiations with Queensland for the 2032 event. This is a hugely positive development but we still have a lot of work to do. Since the Federal Government announced our support for the bid in 2019, we’ve been working with the state and local governments, the Australian Olympic Committee and Paralympics Australia to put forward the best possible case for Queensland to host 2032. The event is potentially a game-changer for Queensland. It will see the Sunshine State beamed around the globe, while delivering an economic and jobs boom. We saw how Sydney 2000 brought our nation together and took Australian sport to a new level, and that’s what we’ll be aiming to do again if we’re successful in hosting the Olympic and Paralympic Games again in 2032.

The best form of welfare is a job. The Morrison Government continues to be focused on job creation. 94% of the 1.3 million people who lost their jobs or were stood down on zero hours are now back in work.

Australia's economic recovery is underway and our labour market has been enormously resilient in the face of this huge economic shock.

Stronger. Safer. Together.
