The Young Liberal Movement is the youth wing of the Liberal Party of Australia, open to anyone aged between 16 and 31 years. Our Movement is a centre-right, mainstream political organisation which subscribes to the values enunciated by Sir Robert Menzies in founding the Liberal Party.
We believe in individual responsibility and supporting Australians who want to get ahead without big government standing in the way.
We believe individuals know how to spend their money better than government.
We believe in the vital freedoms of speech, association, movement and worship and backing aspirational Australians to get ahead.
We believe in the family unit as the enduring foundation of a strong society.
