The McMahon Ministry (LiberalCountry Coalition) was the 46th ministry of the Government of Australia. It was led by the country's 20th Prime Minister, William McMahon. The McMahon Ministry succeeded the Second Gorton Ministry, which dissolved on 10 March 1971 following the resignation of John Gorton as Prime Minister. The ministry was replaced by the First Whitlam Ministry on 5 December 1972 following the federal election that took place on 2 December which saw Labor defeat the Coalition.[1]

As of 16 April 2021, Tom Hughes and Vic Garland are the last surviving Liberal members of the McMahon Ministry, while Ian Sinclair and Peter Nixon are the last surviving Country members. Tony Street is the last surviving assistant minister. Malcolm Fraser was the last surviving Liberal Cabinet minister.
