The subject of the research is lobbying activity in Australia and the way of its legal mediation. The author provides a brief historical review of the legislative initiatives of the Parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia aimed at the regulation of public relations between public officers and the representatives of private interests. The author focuses on the national peculiarities of the Australian scheme of regulation of lobbying relations which manifest themselves, primarily, in the form of unification of norms regulating the activities of “mercenaries” – the code of conduct. The author briefly analyzes the existing acts adopted in different periods of time by the states of Australia. The author applies various general scientific and special research methods, namely the historical, logical, systems-structural, formal-logical methods and others. The novelty of the research lies in the revelation of another national way of lobbying regulation which can be added to the collection of actively studied models of legal regulation of lobbying: American, Canadian, British, German, “European”. Australian experience shows that it is not necessary to issue a special law to regulate lobbyism.
