* NOTE about numbering
Alfred Deakin is listed as the 2nd Prime Minister although he actually served as Prime Minister 3 different times. Likewise, Andrew Fisher is listed as the 5th Prime Minister even though he also served 3 different times. As a result, Kevin Rudd is listed as the 26th Prime Minister although there were actually 30 different terms served since the office was created.

In contrast, under the American system, if Deakin had been the President, he would be listed as the 2nd, 5th and 7th President of the United States. (Yes, we know in the USA a person can only be the President twice.)

NOTES about the Nationalist Party
In 1931 the National Party joined with other groups and formed the United Australia Party.
