75 years ago, the NSW Division of the Liberal Party was formed. Bringing together the United Australia, Liberal Democratic, Commonwealth and Democratic Parties, the Liberal Party had a simple mission - to safeguard our shared beliefs in individual freedom and free enterprise.

Philip Ruddock

The Liberal Party has been the most successful political force in post-war Australia, winning elections and governing for around 27 years in New South Wales and almost 50 years at the federal level. More than half of Australia’s Liberal Prime Ministers, including the last four, have all come from our Division.
 
Our success is due to the many thousands of wonderful men and women from across this great state, whose efforts, support and fellowship have come to define what it means to be a Liberal.
 
Thank you for your continuing support of the Liberal Party in NSW. I know that our best years are ahead of us.

The Beginings of the NSW Liberal Party

Following the historic Canberra conference in October 1944, a second meeting was held in Albury in December 1944 to discuss advancing the cause, with the Party’s organisational and constitutional framework settled upon at the gathering.

Meanwhile, word was spreading about the Liberal Party throughout NSW.
