Each of the states and territories in Australia has its own leader, who also leads the Parliament.

Current state Premiers in Australia, as of 2013 are:

  • Premier of New South Wales - Barry O'Farrell
  • Premier of Victoria - Denis Napthine
  • Premier of Queensland - Campbell Newman
  • Premier of South Australia - Jay Weatherill
  • Premier of Western Australia - Colin Barnett
  • Premier of Tasmania - Lara Giddings

The Northern Territory and Australian Capital Territory do not have Premiers, but a Chief Minister. The chief Minister in the Northern Territory is Adam Giles and the Chief Minister of the ACT is Katy Gallagher.
