Real Estate

No housing crisis for politicians

While owning a home has become out of reach for millions of Australians, many parliamentarians are building large real estate portfolios with the help of tax concessions and taxpayer-funded travel allowances.

Over 60 per cent of federal MPs and senators own real estate beyond their home, including rental properties, second residences in Canberra, holiday and beach houses, commercial real estate and farms.

Our analysis of the Members’ and Senators’ Interest Registers shows the registration of 252 non-principal places of residence (PPR) by 138 parliamentarians. Some properties are co-owned with spouses, partners and other family members.

The two major parties dominate the listings, with Labor representatives owning 47 per cent and those from the Coalition 44 per cent. This is not just due to the number of seats the parties hold, as the table below shows that when parliamentary representation is factored in their holdings still far outpace the minor parties and independents. The difference is starkest with the Greens, where their proportion of holdings is less than half of their parliamentary representation.

Party No. of MPs and senators No. of holdings Proportion of total holdings Party representation in parliament
Labor 68 118 46.8% 103 (45.4%)
Coalition parties 56 110 43.7% 90 (39.7%)
Greens 4 8 3.2% 16 (7.1%)
Other minor parties & independents 10 16 6.4% 18 (7.9%)
Total 138 252

Biggest property owners (includes principal residence)

  • 7 properties: Karen Andrews and Nola Marino
    • 6: Tony Burke and Andrew Willcox
      • 5: Colin Boyce, Gavin Pearce, Louise Miller-Frost, Sophie Scamps
        • 4: Madeleine King, Rowan Ramsey, Rick Wilson, Meryl Swanson Glenn Sterle

          • Landlords

            48 MPs and senators - 21 per cent of the parliament - own a total of 71 rental properties. Labor has 26 landlords in its ranks and the Coalition 15.

            The largest landlord is new LNP MP Andrew Willcox with five rental properties in Queensland he co-owns with his wife. Another of note is Senator Pauline Hanson, who has disclosed she receives income from an investment property in Maitland NSW but failed to declare the property in her interests statement.

            Many of parliament's landlords would benefit from generous tax concessions like negative gearing, if mortgage repayments exceed rental income (as is commonly the case), and/or capital gains tax concessions.


            MPs and senators at the top of the totem pole are the largest real estate investors in parliament.

            69 per cent of Albanese government ministers (29 of 42) own at least one investment property, with twelve owning two or more. Employment Minister Tony Burke owns or co-owns five properties across Tasmania, Victoria and the ACT. Burke had only one investment property at the start of the last parliament in 2019.

            The Coalition is not far behind: 65 per cent of shadow ministers (29 of 44) own at least one investment property, with 14 owning two or more. The Shadow Home Affairs Minister Karen Andrews co-owns six residential properties across Queensland, NSW and Western Australia, while Shadow Assistant Education Minister Nola Marino has six farms in Western Australia.

            Canberra residences

            54 MPs and senators have second residences in the Canberra region for use when parliament is sitting. 52 per cent are owned by Labor parliamentarians and the remainder by those from the Coalition.

            Despite not incurring hotel or motel costs, these parliamentarians are entitled to a tax free travel allowance of $299 for each overnight stay to cover “accommodation, meals and incidental expenses.” As the typical stay during sitting weeks is four nights, Sunday through Thursday, those with a residence would be entitled to $1,196 a week or around $20,000 a year (based on the 2021 sitting schedule).

            The hefty allowance would go a long way to offsetting any mortgage repayments on the properties. Our analysis shows at least 30 parliamentarians have declared mortgages on their Canberra properties, however the true number could be higher as some have not declared which properties their mortgages are for.

            Holiday houses

            Sixteen parliamentarians have declared holiday or beach houses. Teal independent Allegra Spender has even declared two holiday houses at Great Mackerel Beach on Sydney’s northern beaches. Why one holiday house in the same suburb is not enough is anyone's guess.

            Another standout is former defence minister Linda Reynold’s holiday house in Bali. The digs must be useful for avoiding the hordes of Australian tourists.


            At the other end of the spectrum 21 parliamentarians don’t even own a home. However 10 have spouses or partners with residences which they probably have a legal entitlement to a share of in the event of divorce or separation. And another six could be in the same boat as they are senators who are not required to publicly disclose their families’ assets.

            This leaves just four parliamentarians who have declared that neither they nor their immediate family own any real estate, including young Greens MPs’ Max Chandler-Maher and Stephen Bates, Liberal MP James Stevens and Labor MP Matt Burnell. Newly-elected Labor senator Fatima Payman could be in this group too as the 27 year old has only declared one interest. A bank account.

            In time these young elected officials will buy homes, cars and other assets, but let's hope they never reach the levels of some of their parliamentary colleagues. They could do worse than follow the lead of Finance Minister Katy Gallagher with her single home and mortgage. (Gallagher also distinguishes herself from her ministerial colleagues by not accepting gifts, free travel and hospitality.)

            While no one can criticise parliamentarians for wanting to build their wealth, it is disconcerting that so many have done it via a non-productive investment like real estate, which benefits from public subsidies and crowds out people who simply want to buy a home to live in.
