Abstract: Middle power’s Africa policy is gradually gaining prominence in the field of African studies. Since the end of World War II,Australia’s Africa policy has experienced complex changes. From the use of the UN,the Commonwealth and other multilateral mechanisms for African affairs,especially the problem of apartheid in South Africa,to Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard ’s new engagement with a new Africa,and then to Tony Abbott and Malcolm Turnbull’s relatively weak interest in African affairs, Australia’s foreign policy towards Africa presents nonlinear characteristics. Although Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard ‘s Africa policy heritage continues to promote the development of the Australia- Africa relations,the lack of dynamics of the current government in Africa may restrict the future cooperation. At present,Malcolm Turnbull’s Africa policy is under adjustment. The development of the Australia- Africa relations needs more attention of the academia.
