Australians are heading to the polls to select their next parliament and prime minister, in what has been widely referred to as the climate-change election.
Some 16.5 million Australians are enrolled to vote on Saturday, with more than 4.7 million having already cast ballots in early voting by Friday.
Polling stations will be open between 8am and 6pm local time (22:00 GMT on Friday - 08:00 GMT on Saturday). The winner for the lower house, which forms the government, is expected to be known either by late Saturday or in the early hours of Sunday.
Observers have said it is the most ideological-based election Australia has seen in years, with Prime Minister Scott Morrison emphasising the differences on economic policy between his centre-right Liberal-National Coalition and the "reckless spending" of his main rival, the centre-left Australian Labor Party led by Bill Shorten.
"The major campaign themes have been climate change and the economy, specifically whether it is delivering for people," said Danielle Wood, programme director at the Grattan Institute, a Melbourne-based think-tank.
PM Scott Morrison says he has united his conservative government in the nine months since he replaced Malcolm Turnbull.
But Labor opposition leader Bill Shorten has pressed his case with stark policy alternatives.
Australia has mandatory voting and a record 16.4 million enrolled voters.
