Abstract

This article, using literature review, examines the theoretical and practical development and relevance of public administration (PA) in Australia over the last one hundred years, or so. Effectively, Australian PA is a composite model of theoretical and practical ideas derived from other environments, as well as having its own distinct character. The United Kingdom's (UK) Westminster model provided the practical foundation for an Australian model of PA, especially from the time of Australia's federation in 1901. Australian PA also has been impacted by managerialist theories and practices over the years, especially those that have originated in the United States (U.S.). While having its own features, contemporary Australian PA is consistent with universal, market-based models of PA in broad terms, that have been apparent for the last two decades or more and thus has global relevance.
