Australia's Prime Minister Julia Gillard has arrived at Yarralumla to request Governor-General Quentin Bryce issue the writs for a federal election.

Ms Bryce delayed an overseas trip to ensure she would be in Canberra for this visit from the Prime Minister.

Ms Gillard goes into the campaign to try and win a second term for Labor after just over three weeks in the job after she toppled former prime minister Kevin Rudd on June 24.

Once her meeting with Ms Bryce is over - Julia Gillard is expected to hold a media conference setting out her case for Labor to be re-elected.

Today marks the start of the official election campaign of up to six weeks.
