This is a list of members of the Australian Senate from 1983 to 1985. It consisted of ten senators for each of the six states of Australia and two senators representing each of the Northern Territory and the Australian Capital Territory. All members were elected at the 1983 election following a double dissolution of both houses of parliament, rather than the normal case of only half of the state senators facing election. Senators took their seats immediately following the election on 5 March 1983. Half of the state senators terms thus expired on 30 June 1985, with the other half expiring on 30 June 1988. Territory senators terms expire with the House of Representatives.
