The Australian National Alliance (ANA) was a far-right political party active in Australia from 1978 to 1981. Founded in January 1978, it was one of Australia's earliest anti-Asian immigration parties.[1] The ANA contested the 1979 Grayndler by-election, in which its secretary and candidate Frank Salter received 863 votes (1.64%).[2] In 1981 it joined with other parties to form the Progressive Nationalist Party.[3]
