The normal duration of an Australian Federal Government is about three years, although often some people talk about wanting to extend it to a longer period.
Currently a government MUST call an Election within 3 years 20 weeks and 4 days after the last election. This period has been calculated from a page on the AEC that stated: The latest possible date for a House of Representatives election is Saturday, 16 April 2011

The durations of the previous Australian Federal Governments, since 1951, have been:
