The All for Australia League was a minor Australian political party that operated in New South Wales in 1931. The party was established in February 1931.[1] It represented an alternative to the existing conservative parties the United Australia Party and the Country Party, and was generally seen as more right-wing than either.[2] Gordon Bennett was prominent in the League.[3] The party declined after 1931. It dissolved in February 1932 when it merged with the Nationalists to establish the New South Wales division of the United Australia Party.[1]
