The Australian Bill of Rights Group was a minor Australian political party agitating for the creation of a Bill of Rights for Australia. Formally registered on 19 December 1995, it operated until it was deregistered for having fewer than 500 members on 15 November 1999.[1] At the 1996 federal election it contested the Senate in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland on joint tickets with the Republican Party of Australia; among its candidates were future New South Wales Legislative Councillor Peter Breen, who headed the ticket in New South Wales. The party ran a single ticket in Victoria in the 1998 federal election.
